Missing aircraft that disappeared departing New York’s JFK airport uncovered in White Plains, occupants useless: report

Authorities claimed a small aircraft that disappeared following leaving New York’s John F. Kennedy Worldwide Airport Thursday night crashed just before reaching its vacation spot.

Officials explained the solitary-engine Beechcraft A36 was discovered around Rye Lake in White Plains, New York, located adjacent to the Westchester County Airport (HPN), pursuing a huge research-and-rescue procedure, in accordance to Cleveland 19 News.

Its two occupants — a pilot and a passenger — were being deceased, community station Information12 described.

The aircraft was heading to the Cuyahoga County Airport in Richmond Heights, Ohio, but its pilot described obtaining engine difficulty about a mile away from the Westchester County Airport all around 6:15 p.m., Federal Aviation Administration spokesperson Elizabeth Isham Cory reported.
