    Does Anyone Know Details of Plane Crash from Atlantic City to Minnesota?

    http://www.pressofatlanticcity.com/1...ry/218868.html

    These people work in my building on the second floor for a company called Revel Entertainment.

    I must see them all the time. I'm really upset.

    I heard about the crash on the noon news but no details. They just aren't saying much. (I don't have cable so don't know about cnn). This must be really hard since you know these people/ see them everyday at work. What does Revel entertainment do? I hope there are survivors. I'm so sorry this has happened to people in your building. Let us know if you hear anything.

    HappyChic, I'm so sorry. I'm sure it will be awhile before they release the names. They will have to notify next of kin before they tell the media.

    Police: At Least 8 Dead In Owatonna Plane Crash

    WATONNA, Minn. (AP) ― Eight people died and a ninth was unaccounted for after a business jet carrying casino and construction executives crashed in heavy weather Thursday at the Owatonna city airport, authorities said.
    Seven people were dead at the scene after the Raytheon Hawker 800, a charter jet flying from Atlantic City, N.J., went down while trying to land at Owatonna Degner Regional Airport. An eighth died later Thursday at a hospital.
    One person was unaccounted for, although Steele County Sheriff Gary Ringhofer said it was possible that person had never gotten on the flight. The National Transportation Safety Board was sending a team to investigate.
    Owatonna, a town of about 25,000 an hour south of Minneapolis, was just coming through a stretch of severe weather when the crash happened around 9:30 a.m. The jet, owned by East Coast Jets Inc., was carrying passengers with business at Viracon Inc., a glass manufacturing company based in Owatonna.
    Atlantic City Mayor Scott Evans told The Associated Press that two high-ranking executives from Revel Entertainment, which is building a $2 billion hotel-casino project in Atlantic City, and several employees of Tishman Construction were on board the plane that crashed. He did not know their identities, but said Revel CEO Kevin DeSanctis was not aboard the plane. Tishman is helping with the revel project, a company spokesman said.

    Thanks, we are learning more. They were from Revel and Tishman, both on the second floor. I know one name but can't put it on here yet. It was a man and he was a friend of one of the attorneys here. Terrible.

    Wow, that's an interesting link if I've ever seen one,lol. It's all greek to me-seems like they really know what they're talking about though.

    Revel Entertainment also had employees on the flight but they have not released the names of those victims.

    The flight intiated in Allentown pa and stopped to pick up additional passengers at Atlantic City airport. The were on approach and had spoken with the tower but there was no mention of any trouble. There was stormy weather in the area but reports are conflicting as to if that would be the source of the crash.

    So very sad.. my prayers and condolences to the families

    Thanks Laini. I am not 100% sure what Revel does but it seems that they were building a casino next to Showboat in AC. I don't know anyone by names, just faces. They haven't been in our building for long - maybe 2 years.

    This sucks.

    Thanks everyone . . . I'm sure that I'll get more details at work today. I keep trying to figure out who passed away. So sad.

    They named the additional people. One was a girl who was 44 years old but she didn't work in our building. Three guys' names were released today. One guy was 50, one 44 and the other 62. Such a shame.
