Sounds like they've narrowed it down to a relatively small section of Umstead where the plane/pilot are now.

They are still calling it a rescue mission hopefully that's the case.

Lol no. Normally with weather, diversions are planned ahead of time in the event of any issues, but something like what happened last night requires a little bit of local knowledge and common sense thinking and communication with other local stations through a dispatcher.

ATC does not tell anyone how or what to do, basically we are asking for permission to do what we want and they fit our requests in. Obviously with the airport closed (common for any sort of accident to allow emergency vehicles to roam about at will) they couldn't let people land but they aren't directing flights to other airports without being told where they are going. Hope that makes sense.

In my case we were supposed to land around 745 and I ended up stepping off at around 10 IIRC.

Of course it did, and it got lots of people to click!

Wreckage found.

I believe runway 14-32 goes back to the original configuration of the airport in the 1940s. After 5L-23R opened in the mid-1980s, there were no more arrivals on 14 or departures on 32. Sometime in the 1990s, 14-32 was truncated so that it didn't intersect with 5R-23L.

2 casualties in the wreck.

No mention of if they were the only two people on the plane but I'd assume that to be the case. Will probably be confirmed later.

Weather near the time of crash was VRB04KT 10SM OVC013... low ceiling but good visibility underneath. CFIT, fuel starvation, mechanical failure, pilot incapacitation... could be any number of things, or a combination. Apparently the tower or approach control knew he was inbound. Will have to wait for the NTSB preliminary statement.

Private pilot certificate 10/7/2017. AIRPLANE SINGLE ENGINE LAND, AIRPLANE MULTIENGINE LAND, and INSTRUMENT AIRPLANE.
