The little plane that crashed in a thickly forested area after going missing in Westchester County is still there. The two men’s bodies in the plane were discovered close by. The pilot and passenger, according to the authorities, were Cleveland Jews.
The Beechcraft A36, a single-engine aircraft, was found late Thursday night in a wooded area after a local search and rescue operation, according to Westchester County Police. The helicopter crashed less than two miles from the Westchester County Airport after taking off from JFK on its way to the Cuyahoga County Airport just south of Cleveland.
Before FAA air traffic controllers lost radar and radio contact with the aircraft, according to the FAA, the pilot reported potential engine problems. In the woods, a crashed jet was discovered. The pilot received authorization from the FAA to take flight from JFK although rain and thunderstorms covered the sky on Thursday night. According to officials, the FAA and National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) are looking into the matter.
