Five young men lost their lives in a car crash at an airstrip John Travolta and others use. Click here to see how a daily newspaper used this photo in Oslo, Norway.

Here is one of my original photos taken before sunrise.  I was originally told there was plane crash, but it was a car with five young men, driving at excessive speed off an elevated air strip at Greystone  Airport near Ocala, Florida.  See graphic below about the accident.
