Iowa Street residents are nervous to return home

Posted:

"It was very scary, surreal," says Vickey Dinger.

Vickey and her daughter Kelsey say they were on their way out of the house when they heard a loud noise.

"We were just going to the store, we walked out on the porch and we heard the explosion and she ducked. We were thinking something was going to fall on our head," says Vickey.

The private jet missed hitting their home by just one house.

"It got kinda dark and then it was shaking so I stood out there and I was too scared to move and she said 'what is that?" says Kelsey.

When they finally had a chance to look around, they say they were shocked by what they saw next door. "We see the debris just going full force. I look over and the house is just gone," says Vickey.

They've lived here for 10 years. They never thought they'd see this.

"That never even crossed my mind, a plane crashing into the house," says Vickey.

"Not this close, you think that once they make it this far they're pretty safe," says Kelsey.

"It's just surreal." Denise Sult lives directly across the street from where the plane hit.

"You don't expect a broken apart plane to be in your neighbors house." Now she says she is nervous to return home.

"Every plane you hear going overhead, you're going to be a little worried it's coming for ya." She wasn't home when the plane crashed and she was relived to know all her neighbors made it out alive.

"It's amazing if you look at the houses that anybody made it out of them."
