KATC is reporting an Acadiana man was killed in a plane crash in Destin, Fl last night. The two engine Cessna plane was reported to have crashed into the Gulf of Mexico at 8:30pm last night.

Acadiana man Al Habetz was the pilot of the plane.

From KATC -

The Coast Guard, Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office, and Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission launched boats to begin a search shortly after multiple people reported either seeing a plane crash into the water or hearing the impact. The Coast Guard recovered the pilot's body and no other people were believed to have been on board the aircraft.

KATC reports Habetz dropped off passengers earlier yesterday at the Destin airport and was on his way back home to Louisiana when the plane crashed.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Habetz, his family and friends.
