NORAD Monitoring Unresponsive Jet En Route to Florida

An unresponsive plane flying over the Atlantic Ocean is being watched by fighter jets, according to the North American Aerospace Defense Command.

The plane is a Socata TBM-700 light business and utility aircraft, and left from Rochester, N.Y. for Naples, Fla.

As of 11:30 a.m. the occupants on the plane did not respond to attempts to communicate.

The plane is being monitored jointly by NORAD and the Federal Aviation Administration, and is heading towards Cuban airspace.

Hypoxia suspected.

Unresponsive plane from New York crashes into ocean near Jamaica

Fighter jets were dispatched by the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) on Friday to escort an unresponsive small aircraft flying over the Atlantic Ocean, but the plane continued and eventually crashed near Jamaica, officials said.

This plane, a small Socata TBM-700, originally took off from Rochester, N.Y., with a flight plan that said it was heading to Naples, Fla. It had departed from Greater Rochester International Airport on Friday just before 8:30 a.m. and was scheduled to land at Naples Municipal Airport at noon.

The plane’s pilot stopped responding to radio calls at 10 a.m., a spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Administration said. Air traffic controllers with the FAA continued to track the plane as it flew southbound, passing by the southern coast of Florida at an altitude of about 25,000 feet.

The unresponsive plane crashed into the ocean about 14 miles off of the coast of Port Antonio, Jamaica, at about 2:15 p.m., according to the FAA. The agency said it was unable to confirm the number of people on board.

NORAD said that the situation may have involved hypoxia, or a low level of oxygen.

The plane was believed to belong to Larry Glazer, a Rochester developer, according to the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle. Attempts to reach Buckingham Properties, a real estate development and property management company in Rochester, were unsuccessful.

After attempts to communicate with the plane were unsuccessful, the FAA contacted NORAD, which dispatched two F-15 fighter jets to investigate the aircraft at 11:30 a.m., according to NORAD. The U.S. Coast Guard also launched a crew to monitor the situation.

Shortly before 1:30 p.m., NORAD said that the unresponsive plane entered Cuban airspace, so the U.S. fighter jets broke off. NORAD said that its two F-15 fighter jets returned to their base after 2 p.m. for refueling, while NORAD is using radar to monitor the unresponsive aircraft as it leaves Cuban airspace.


Earlier this week, NORAD also sent two F-16 fighter jets to respond to another unresponsive aircraft in the United States that took off from an airport in Wisconsin on Monday. The plane, which was bound for an airport in Manassas, Va., near Washington, D.C., crashed into the Atlantic Ocean, about 140 miles away from Washington.

NORAD also sent two CF-18 fighter jets to escort a plane flying to Toronto last week.

I heard a plane that took off from Bagram US airbase in Afghanistan today was forced to land in Iran by Iranian fighter jet.
