A small aircraft with four people has gone missing over Bermuda Triangle. The occupants of the airplane included a New York City based businesswoman who was accompanied by her two young sons. Another man whose identity has been revealed as 52-year old was accompanying the 40-year old businesswoman and her children.
The New York City businesswoman has been identified as 40-yead old Jennifer Blumin. Her son’s have also been identified as Phineas and Theodore, while the fourth person has been recognized as 52-year old Nathan Ulrich.
Reports suggest that Jennifer Blumin was travelling in a MU-2B aircraft when Miami Air Traffic Control lost contact with her aircraft as around 2:10 p.m. on May 15. At the time of the incident the small plane was some 37 miles east of Eleuthera in the Bahamas. Yesterday, officials said that they had discovered the debris of the ill-fated aircraft some 15 miles east of Eleuthera.
Officials claim that the small plane that had faced some troubles in the past too had left Borinquen in Puerto Rico at 11 a.m. and had been due to land in Titusville, Florida. The U.S. Coast Guard says that Ulrich, from Lee, New Hampshire, was piloting the plane. He is said to be the boyfriend of the businesswoman.
Media reports suggest that Ulrich’s parents got the news of their son’s unfortunate death following a phone call. His father Gael Ulrich said, “That’s very troubling”. In his last radio transmission, Nathan Ulrich said the plane was traveling at an altitude of 24,000 feet at a speed of 300 knots, officials said.
Reports suggest that massive hunt for the plane was launched on Tuesday with help from U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Royal Bahamas Defense Force, officials said. Four aircraft and two boats were scouring an area of 800 square miles outside the Bahamas, officials said.
A report in the NYDailyNews says “Blumin has been the subject of numerous news stories profiling her unique design firm Skylight Studios. She’s known for finding derelict locations in New York City and transforming them into dazzling event spaces. Blumin — who has two sons Phineas, 4, and Theodore, 3, and until recently was living in Tribeca — launched Skylight Studios in 2004”.
