Small plane crash in Westchester kills Rockefeller kin

PURCHASE – The great-grandson of John D. Rockefeller was killed when his small plane crashed shortly after takeoff from Westchester County Airport on Friday morning, authorities said.

Richard Rockefeller, MD, 64, was returning from Maine where he celebrated his father, David Rockefeller’s 99th birthday. Richard lived in Falmouth, Maine and had flown in and out of Westchester frequently, officials said.

He was described as an experienced pilot. Fog and rain on Friday morning may have contributed to the accident, according to authorities, who said he had taken off, clipped some trees and crashed not far from the airport.
