At Least Two People On Board At The Time Of The Crash
A business jet operating as a freighter has gone down in the
Des Plaines River in suburban Chicago after being cleared to land
at Chicago Executive Airport.
It was not immediately clear how many people were on board the
aircraft, which was registered to Royal Air Freight of Waterford,
Michigan, or what might have gone wrong. Divers and firefighters
had been called to the accident scene in an effort to reach the
Airport spokeswoman Laura Witlox told the Associated Press that
the plane went down about 1400 local time. FAA spokeswoman
Elizabeth Cory said in a recorded phone message that a pilot and
co-pilot were believed to be on board. It was unknown if
there was anyone else on the plane.
Pictures posted on a local radio station website showed pieces
of an extensively damaged aircraft on the banks of the river. The
plane was reportedly manufactured in 1977.
