Weather may get him
Did he just end it?
Wondering same thing....
No updates anymore on fr24
Yeah, no more returns on any of my apps. Should be over.
Looks like Game Over. Last hit on Flightaware was 900' MSL -- about 450' AGL -- and 163 mph. Appears to be sparsely-populated, wooded country.
Wow. Appears that he’s very close to my location now! That’s a Tupelo based King Air.
Interesting no law enforcement or fire helicopters in the area... At least not on ADS-B.
How do you receive a report when a plane goes supersonic other than when someone on the ground is witnessing ?
Did he go down or just discover his transponder was on?
Still not seeing any emergency aircraft over the area where he was last pinged so perhaps he turned it off or the FAA turned it off...
This is Mississippi we’re talking about!
Are there no news helos out there? In SoCal about 7 would have swarmed the area by now.
Yeah looks like he ended it.
Reports are in that he crashed. I am sure the FAA grounded all traffic in the area so it will take a minute for first responders.
Is that a model of King Air that requires a type rating?
FlightAware seems to have stopped updating, last altitude no higher than 900'. Said to be over a national forest: What's the terrain altitude?
the plane looks to be fairly intact.
Get ready for the "we have to do something" political **** storm that is sure to follow.
No TFR, so planes not "grounded."
Holly Springs National Forest I’m guessing. Hard to say but his last location seems to be just a bit east of that. I fly this area a lot. Mix of heavy woods but also a lot of farm land. Parts of the forest are kinda rugged but nothing major. There’s a lot 4 wheeler trails and fire access roads through the forest.
That looks survivable.
He’s fine. Union County police have him
Did it kill him?
I assumed suicide by plane. Perhaps he had a change of heart; otherwise, this joyride will cost him years of freedom.
Per video on social media it might even be a re-usable airplane.
Gotta do what you gotta do for that turbine PIC!
Federal time too.
Is this just theft or is it terrorism?
“we’ll give you a class date, but you need three more hours of multi before it starts”.
we’ve got fences around the airports…
Too bad the cops on-scene couldn't finish the job he started and failed at.
It was an inside job though
edit per ktup, none of these.
Im seeing “Patterson, (Cory or Corey)”
(There are 17 Pattersons in MS. There is one Cory in Shannon, MS, student pilot years ago)
Walmart shoppers can return now.
You believe the police should murder this guy?
To deadstick a king air in a "good landing" this wasn't just a run of the mill suicidal plane thief. Dude evidently knew his way around king airs, how to feather, etc.
