"Richard Rockefeller, the son of the prominent philanthropist David Rockefeller, was killed Friday morning when the small plane he was piloting crashed shortly after takeoff, according to a spokesman for the family.
Mr. Rockefeller, 64, was the only person on board the plane, which the Federal Aviation Administration identified as a Piper PA-46.
The cause of the crash was not immediately clear. Mr. Rockefeller took off from the Westchester County Airport around 8 on a rainy and foggy morning. His plane crashed less than a mile from the airport, near Cottage Road in the town of Harrison.

Really what does it matter?
Some privileged person died, how many brown people have died or been murdered without so much of a notice.
My understanding is that landing and takeoff are the times when the bad stuff happens...you seldom if ever hear about planes falling out of the sky...
