NEW ORLEANS — A New Orleans pilot faces a long road to recovery after surviving a plane crash in North Carolina.

Sean Harrison and two friends were flying in a small plane, taking aerial photos of a summer camp in the mountains of North Carolina, when the plane became unresponsive, according to Harrison's family. 

The plane crashed on the outskirts of the camp and all three men on board survived, though they were all very badly injured.
