    Fighter jets accompany unconscious pilot's plane on fatal journey in VA

    F-16 fighter jets were scrambled Saturday, when a plane flew into restricted airspace over the nation's capital. Tragically, the fighter pilots found that the man inside the small, Cirrus aircraft was unconscious.

    All they could do was accompany the plane, until it crashed into the ocean off the Virginia coast.

    The plane was registered to Ronald Hutchinson of Brookfield, Wisconsin. Coastguard searches are continuing for the wreckage.

    Well, at least it is good to know that the jets were dispatched and got up there. Unlike on 9/11.

    Yes, and it's a small comfort to know that the pilot was unconscious. Otherwise the family would forever wonder if he had taken his own life.

    'Coast Guard Petty Officer Nate Littlejohn said the search was halted Sunday morning after a civilian boater recovered a wheel and engine cowling from the single-engine Cirrus. Littlejohn said the chances of finding anything else were slim.'

    'Crews searched the waters for the plane, which crashed about 50 miles southeast of Chincoteague Island along the Virginia coast, Littlejohn said Saturday.'

    'The pilot had not been responding to radio calls since 1:00 p.m. The Coast Guard was notified about 2:40 p.m. Saturday'

    I think this pilot may have been deceased before the crash, from a heart attack perhaps. Almost two hours is a long time to be unconscious.
