Update VIDEO- Pilot Asked for Help Before Crash=Runaway Plane



Two US F-15 Fighter Jets are Intercepting Unresponsive Aircraft over Atlantic


5 September 2014




Two American fighter jets were sent to intercept an unresponsive “light business and utility aircraft” late Friday morning, the North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD, acknowledged.

According to a statement published by NORAD, jets have been deployed to investigate the aircraft, believed to be en route from Rochester, New York to Naples, Florida, after the plane failed to respond to attempts to communicate.

NORAD, “the bi-national Canadian and American command that is responsible for the air defense of North America and maritime warning,” is monitoring the situation along with the US Federal Aviation Administration, the group said on Friday.

The aircraft is question was described as a Socata TBM-700 jet, and was being trailed by NORAD as of 11:30 am EDT.

“NORAD's mission – in close collaboration with homeland defense, security and law enforcement partners – is to prevent air attacks against North America, safeguard the sovereign airspaces of the United States and Canada by responding to unknown, unwanted and unauthorized air activity approaching and operating within these airspaces and provide aerospace and maritime warning for North America,” according to the statement.

According to CNN, the US Coast Guard has been communicating with authorities in Cuba as the plane approaches that nation’s airspace.

Update re: VIDEO- Pilot Asked for Help Before Crash=Runaway Plane

Unresponsive Plane Has Now Crashed off Jamaica



The Socata TBM-700 took off from Rochester, N.Y., around 8:30 a.m. ET and was supposed to land in Naples, Fla., shortly after 2 p.m. ET.


Update:
  • Single-engine plane crashed in waters just north of Jamaica
  • F-15 jets ended chase as plane approached Cuba
  • Speculation those on board suffered hypoxia


A private U.S. single-engine plane that flew for hours with an unresponsive pilot crashed north of Jamaica after crossing over Cuba, a Jamaican military official said.


A New York county official has confirmed that New York state real estate developer Larry Glazer and his wife, Jane, were among those killed. He was reported to have his pilot's licence, but it's not known whether he was at the controls of the Socata TBM-700. The plane was owned by Glazer's company in Rochester, N.Y.
The high performance turboprop had departed Rochester at 8:45 a.m. ET and was supposed to land in Naples, Fla., shortly after 2 p.m. ET., according to its filed flight plan.

However, the plane’s occupants did not respond to attempts to communicate, and the aircraft was detected flying southeast of Florida, Norad said. Air traffic controllers were last able to contact the pilot at 10 a.m., the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said.

Two U.S. air force F-15 fighter jets had been following the plane, but ended the chase after the private plane entered Cuban airspace and continued south in a straight line, according to Norad (North American Aerospace Defence Command).
Earlier, Norad cited in its Twitter feed "possible hypoxia" as the reason the pilot was unresponsive. Hypoxia is a condition in which the body is deprived of adequate oxygen.

"The pilot could have become ill. He could have had a heart attack. He could have passed away in flight," Arthur Rosenberg, an American pilot and aviation attorney, told CBC News.

The TBM-700 can seat up to seven people, but it's not known how many people are on board. There are media reports of three people on board when the aircraft went down 22 kilometres northeast of Port Antonio, off eastern Jamaica.

FlightAware.com identified the plane's tail number as N900KN. FAA records show that plane is owned by a company based at the same address as a real estate firm in Rochester. The firm, Buckingham Properties, is owned by developer Larry Glazer, who also is president of the TBM Owners and Pilots Association.

Update re: VIDEO- Pilot Asked for Help Before Crash=Runaway Plane

Passed Out Pilot Twice Asked to Descend to Lower Altitude

Mystery in the Sky: Runaway Plane With Pilot Appearing to be Unconscious:


The pilot of a small plane twice sought permission to fly at a lower altitude before he slumped over the controls, apparently unconscious as the plane flew for more than four hours before crashing into the sea off the coast of Jamaica.


But when asked by air traffic controllers if he wanted to declare an emergency, which would have made his request to descend a priority, the pilot said no, sources told ABC News. Shortly after that call, the pilot stopped responding.

Alarm over the plane that would not respond to radio calls prompted the Air Force to send two F-15 jets to shadow the plane. At one point one of the military pilots can be heard saying that the pilot of the turboprop was unconscious, but he appeared to be breathing.

"I can see his chest rising and falling. Right before I left, it was the first time we could see that he was actually breathing," the pilot said.

The turboprop was flown by Larry Glazer and his wife Jane Glazer of Rochester, New York. They were en route from Rochester to Naples, Florida.


Ken Glazer, the son of Larry and Jane Glazer of Rochester, told ABC affiliate WHAM that his parents were the only two people on board the plane.

The aircraft stopped responding to radio calls at 10 a.m. ET, according to a statement from the Federal Aviation Administration.

The plane was flying at 28,000 feet at 10 a.m. when the pilot radioed air traffic controllers seeking permission to descend to 18,000 feet because of an issue with the plane, according to a federal official, an aviation source and live air traffic controller audio. Controllers cleared the plane to descend to 25,000 feet, but Glazer asked to go even lower, the sources said.

Controllers denied him permission to fly lower because of traffic below, but instructed Glazer to turn left so he could get out of traffic and then descend. Glazer made the left turn, but when controllers then gave him clearance to drop to 20,000 feet he had stopped responding, the sources said.

Aviation expert and ABC News consultant John Nance said the pilot’s requests to get to a lower altitude and his debilitation “clearly shows a progressive hypoxic situation,” a condition in which the body does not get an adequate supply of oxygen.
Nance said it wasn’t clear whether the pilot was incapacitated by the rapid depressurization of the cabin or fumes in the ****pit.

Lack of oxygen could have affected Glazer's judgement when he told controllers there was no need to declare an emergency just moments before he passed out.

The plane flew on down the Atlantic coast, crossed over Cuba and apparently ran out of fuel and crashed off the coast of Jamaica about 2:15 p.m.
The fighter jets followed the plane until it reached Cuban airspace. The jets were initially supposed to fly around Cuba’s eastern end and wait in international airspace to pick up the trail, officials said. But the planes instead returned to base to refuel.

Glazer was CEO and managing partner of Buckingham Properties and pioneered Rochester's downtown development.
Rochester Mayor Lovely A. Warren said the city would fly flags at half mast for the Glazers as well as Police Officer Daryl Pierson, who was shot in the line of duty.

"It is difficult to put into words how much Larry Glazer has meant to our community," the mayor said. "Larry worked hard to return a sense of vitality and excitement to our Center City. His efforts helped to lift our spirits and restore our sense of optimism. He has been a treasured friend and partner."

The FAA reported the plane to be a Socata TBM-700, while FlightAware said it believes the aircraft is a TBM-900.

A U.S. Coast Guard C-130 will look for the plane's wreckage, an official said. Jamaica said a search and rescue team had been dispatched to the area.
