Officials in Daytona Beach, Florida, say two occupants of a Piper Seminole that clipped two houses before crashing in a retention pond Saturday suffered only superficial injuries. The two were “alert” when first responders arrived. The aircraft was submerged except for one wheel. The duo apparently got caught in a hailstorm before the crash.

Photos from the scene show the Seminole apparently went between two houses, clipping each with a wing, before taking the plunge. Witnesses said it was hailing heavily at the time. No one in the houses was hurt. The crash occurred about five miles from the Ormond Beach Municipal Airport, where at least one of the flight schools lists a Seminole in its fleet.

Lotta details missing here. It was an ATP school plane. The cfi and student exited the plane from being inverted in the pond underwater. This was an amazing feat!
