In unfortunate news, 2014’s streak of plane crashes has continued with a plane out of New York crashing in alongside the coast of Jamaica.
Billionaire Larry Glazer and his wife Jane have been confirmed dead at the scene.
Developer Larry Glazer, to whom the plane is registered, was on board with his wife, Jane, according to a tweet from WROC TV.
Glazer’s son, Rick Glazer, told the Associated Press: “I don’t have any comment about what’s going on at this time.”
F-15 pilots that had been trailing the plane could see a pilot slumped over, a NORAD official said according to CNN. The windows had been frosted and it was unclear how much fuel was left.
Three people were believed to be on board the 7-seat Socata TBM-700, a light business and utility aircraft, ABC reported.
The plane is registered to a development, Buckingham Properties at 359 Alexander St., which is owned by Glazer, the Democrat & Chronicle reported. He was not able to be reached Friday afternoon, and his company did not answer calls.
