We have a pilot that was inbound to the field. His co-pilot jumped out of the aircraft.” “So, they said he jumped out of the aircraft,” they say. “His copilot jumped out without the parachute so he might have impact to the ground.” “I guess at this point in time, all we can really do is kind of do a recovery,” “Yeah, I know. Yeah, I mean, I don’t know,” a different FAA worker who takes over the call responds. “This is the craziest thing I’ve ever dealt with.” “I mean, I’m sure this pilot is going to be shaken up. I have no idea. He literally just said, ‘my pilot just jumped out’.” Though it’s yet to be solved , under which circumstances he took the step , Co-pilot’s body was found in a backyard about 30 miles south of Raleigh-Durham International Airport.
