No Comments

A Gulfstream G-IVSP crashed shortly after takeoff from Higuero, Dominican Republic on Wednesday and was destroyed when it collided with terrain. All six passengers and three crewmembers were killed in the crash. The jet had just taken off from Higuero when reports indicate that the pilot told controllers there was a problem with the jet, and he attempted to make an emergency landing at the nearby Las Americas International Airport in Santo Domingo, but never got to a runway. Video from a witness shows black smoke from the site of the crash, which looks to be either on the edge of the airport property or close by.
