Storms In Area At The Time
Three persons onboard a 1967 Piper PA-30 Twin Comanche were
killed Wednesday morning, when their aircraft came down in a field
on the eastern shore of Maryland.
Flight tracking data shows the aircraft departed Westchester Co.
Airport in White Plains, NY just before 0800 local time, bound for
Pinehurst, NC. Reported weather conditions at Cambridge-Dorchester
Airport, approximately six miles south of the accident site, showed
a thunderstorm in the vicinity at the time of the accident.
Air traffic controllers at Patuxent River Naval Air Station said
they saw the aircraft descended rapidly on their screens at 0936,
base spokesman John Romer told The Associated Press. Radio contact
was also lost at that time.
The plane (type shown below) had been assigned a flight altitude
of 6,000 feet, according to FlightAware.com, indicating the
aircraft was on an IFR flight plan.
NTSB spokesman Paul Schlamm said the passenger's identitied were
not immediately released. Debris from the impact was found
scattered over a wide area, said authorities, and there was no sign
of a post-impact fire.
