Small plane crash kills Rockefeller
The weather in White Plains was foggy and rainy when a Piper Meridian single-engine turbo prop missed a residence and crashed on a horse farm near Westchester County Airport, killing the pilot, Richard Rockefeller. Rockefeller was a doctor who had just celebrated his father’s 99th birthday. Weather may have been responsible for the accident. Rockefeller did not report a mayday.
There was no one else aboard.
The debris field covered a hundred feet. Rockefeller was 64 years old, and leaves behind two adult children and a wife.
The FAA and NTSB are investigating. The crash occurred on Friday June 13th.
