Alligator Killed By Plane On Orlando Runway

A photo showing an alligator dead on an airport runway in Orlando has gone viral.  

Officials at Orlando Executive Airport say the 500 pound gator was on the runway as a plane was landing last week.  The pilot noticed a large object resting on the center line of the runway while he was bringing the plane down at night and struck the gator.  

Another pilot took the picture of the dead gator and said that the gator had jumped up as the plane came down, and struck the wing.

The airport is bordered by two lakes.
