Plane Crash Near Washington, DC: No Survivors Found as Fighter Jets Attempt Intercept

A plane crash near Washington, DC, on Sunday after the pilot became unresponsive, leading military fighter jets to scramble for interception. The unresponsive aircraft prompted a ground and air search by state and local authorities. Unfortunately, no survivors found at the crash site when first responders arrived.

US F-16 fighter jets deployed to intercept the unresponsive plane crash near Washington. They caused a sonic boom across the Washington, DC, region as they traveled at supersonic speeds.

The jets used flares to attract the attention of the pilot, but their attempts to establish contact were unsuccessful.

The crashed aircraft, a Cessna 560 Citation V, overshot its planned destination by 315 miles before ultimately crashing near the George Washington National Forest in Virginia.

Four people were on board, according to sources familiar with the investigation. State and local authorities continue their search efforts, while the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will conduct an investigation.

The plane crash near Washington private jet registered to Encore Motors of Melbourne, Inc., a Florida-based company.

The president of the company, Barbara Rumpel, confirmed her family members were on board the aircraft.

Her husband, John Rumpel, stated that their daughter, granddaughter, and the nanny were among the passengers. The plane and its occupants have not been located after the plane crash near Washington.

The sonic boom caused by the military aircraft was heard across the Washington, DC, metropolitan region. Capitol Hill briefly went on an elevated alert as the small aircraft flew near the area.

However, it left the region, and normalcy was restored. The incident had no impact on the security of President Joe Biden, who was golfing at the time.
