A small plane went down in Alabama Saturday night when it lost an engine while coming in for a landing. On board was a family of seven. All of them were killed.
Plane lost an engine
The plane was being piloted by the father of the family, Fred Teutenberg, 42. He was attempting to land the plane at the Demopolis, Fla. airport when the plane lost an engine and crashed into a wooded area less than two miles from the airport. His family, a wife and five children, were on board.
Found early Sunday
Searchers located the crash at about 2:17 a.m. Sunday. The plane was found upside down. One of the wings had been shorn off, apparently by a tree, when the plane came down. There were no survivors.
Returning to attend church
The Teutenberg family had been attending a family reunion in St. Louis, Mo. The coroner who identified the bodies said, according to relatives, the family was flying home to Destin, Fla. in order to be home in time for church the next morning.
On board were Teutenberg’s wife, Terresa, who was in her mid-30s, and their five children. The children were identified as Emma, 2, Peyton, 4, Ellie, 6, Brendon, 9, and Will, 10. Marengo County Coroner Stuart Eatmon identified them.
Plane built in 1978
The plane was a Cessna C421, a small prop plane. According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the plane was built in 1978 and was registered to Advanced Integrated Technology Solutions LLC in Niceville, Fla.
Father played in the church band
The family was very active in the First United Methodist Church of Niceville. Fred did volunteer work for the church and played bass guitar in the church band.
A family friend, Bob Webb, said in an interview, “He not only played with our band, he played with other church bands elsewhere. He told me one time he even toured a while, so he had a lot of interests.”
