A pilot was shocked to find out the object he hit in the wee hours of the morning, was in fact a 10' alligator laying across the runway. At 2:25 a.m. June 1st, a pilot was coming in for a landing at the Orlando Executive Airport and hit the alligator, causing damage to his plane but no injuries to the pilot. Sadly the alligator was killed in the accident. Officials from The Greater Orlando Aviation Authority say "occasionally wildlife gets onto the runway but officials had not seen that size of a gator in the area before."
