A Piper PA 32 was returning from Tennessee, carrying four males that had gone on a hunting trip. The plane entered some clouds and the pilot began flying by instrument. Radar tracking of the aircraft showed the plane’s path becoming erratic before it finally vanished from communications, and a search began.
Among the four on the plane was 40 year old Quinton “Doug” Whitaker. Quinton was tragically killed as a result of the crash. Doug was reportedly a police chaplain with the Somerset department.
Also killed in the accident was 41 year old Kyle P. Stewart, 41 year old Scott T. Foster, and Scott’s 15 year old son Noah Foster. It is unknown who was piloting the plane at the time of the accident, but the aircraft was registered to Scott Foster.
The accident remains under investigation, and the NTSB is in the process of removing the wreckage to a secure location for further study.
