As Granthshala 26 reports, several passengers left Houston Executive Airport in Brookshire wearing their Astro jerseys as the plane behind them was still engulfed in flames.

McCaskill described feeling “shaky and numb” after fleeing a burning plane in his Astros jersey.

“I lost my shoes,” she said.

“Yeah. Thank God,” Walker said of being able to tell the story of surviving a plane crash to passengers.

The FAA said a McDonnell Douglas MD-87 rolled through a fence and caught fire at Houston Executive Airport. The plane is registered with a Houston area investment firm.

The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating what caused the accident, with the Texas Division of Emergency Management also assisting federal agencies.

“It’s an accident. Everyone came out safely. It’s being investigated,” an investigator told Granthshala 26.
