The airplane crash in Ocala has some questioning the safety of experimental aircraft.
Are they safe as "plant made" planes or risky crafts for thrill-seekers.
Flying one of these experimental airplanes can be safe. A pilot at the Williston Airport says an experimental airplane goes through similar inspections as certified airplanes like commercial airliners.
Earlier Saturday TV 20 was invited by pilot Denny Funnemark to fly in an experimental airplane so we could give you the experience. TV 20 accepted.
Denny Funnemark has been flying aircraft for years. He says that flying an experimental airplane is no different than flying one that has been certified. They are designed to the same certification standards for the F.A.A. To see the complete story please see video on right:
