Aviation officials say that a private business jet that was forced to land at the Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, Connecticut, on Friday 3 March 2023 because of rough weather killed one person.
A Bombardier CL30 jet departing from Dillant-Hopkins Airport in Keene, New Hampshire, heading to Leesburg Executive Airport in Virginia, was diverted to the Connecticut airport around 4 p.m. on Friday after “encountering severe turbulence,” the Federal Aviation Administration wrote in a statement to CNN.
The National Transportation Safety Board wrote on Twitter that one passenger died because of the turbulence.
As per the report, The NTSB told CNN that there were three passengers and two crew members on board the private jet. We don’t know what’s going on with the other people.
