Officials said they believe fog was a factor in the crash.
Shannon, who was a local attorney from Lakeland, filed a flight plan Sunday morning to fly to Key West, according to the sheriff's office.
After taking off, the plane came down on the airport's east runway in what Judd described as a "horrific" crash.
Authorities identified the four passengers as Shannon's daughters, Olivia Shannon, 24, and Victoria Shannon-Worthington, 26; Shannon-Worthington's husband, Peter Worthington Jr., 27; and a family friend, Krista Clayton, 32, of Lakeland.
Victoria was a school teacher in Baltimore, Maryland, and Peter was a law student at the University of Maryland, Judd said.
