Dr. Lionel Meadows, a Northeast Georgia physician who died in a plane crash in Tennessee, has been identified. He died on Sunday when his single-engine Cessna 182 crashed into the Polk County woods near the Tennessee-Georgia border. According to reports, the doctor was going to meet his family when the tragic accident occurred. At the time of writing, the official cause of the crash had not been released.
Dr. Lionel Meadows was flying for Clarkesville’s Georgia Company of Aspiring Flyers, LLC. According to research, the small plane took off from South Bend, Indiana, at 3:59 p.m. on Sunday. It was scheduled to land at Jefferson’s Jackson County Airport, but it never arrived. According to EMA Director Stephen Lofty of Polk County, Tennessee, he received a 911 call about the crash on Sunday evening. He started to WRCB:
“Around 6:35, we received a call from a local resident stating that they had heard a metallic tiny sound near their residence, and they thought that it might have been a plane.”
Search teams discovered an aircraft wing on the side of a road. Due to severe weather, crews were about to abandon their search until a drone discovered an “irradiated field heat source” on Sunday night. When the search for Dr. Meadows resumed on Monday, his body was found in the plane’s cockpit. After learning that the right wing of the plane was missing, Polk County 911 Emergency Communication District shared a Facebook post which you can see below.
