Two Orthodox Jewish men were killed when their plane crashed near Armonk, New York, in a true tragedy.

Cleveland residents Boruch Taub and Binyamin Chafetz were traveling on the aircraft. Their plane, unfortunately, crashed into trees not far from Westchester Airport, killing them both.

At 4:58 PM, the Beechcraft single-engine aircraft took off from JFK. They were making their way to Richmond Heights, Ohio.

The men, according to sources, chartered the aircraft so they could travel to a Levaya.

The pilot informed air traffic controllers that he had a warning light for low oil pressure at 5:25 p.m., according to county police spokesman Kieran O’Leary. , and it was suggested that he head to Westchester County Airport.

According to a source, the aircraft experienced engine failure.

At 5:30 p.m., Westchester Airport lost radio communication with him, and then the aircraft vanished from the radar.

O’Leary claimed that the search got underway practically right away at the airport and beyond the Connecticut line into Greenwich.

Drones were used along with foot searches because of how thickly forested the area around the airport is.

The area of interest in the search has now been reduced to a densely wooded area behind an office building on King Street (Rt120) in Armonk. The plane and its passengers were eventually found.



The majority of the search for the missing plane is currently being conducted in Westchester, New York’s North Castle area. A number of small bodies of water are located behind the dead-end road.
