Father Of Plane Crash Was Warned About High Winds

Federal investigators say a ground crewman warned the father of a central Indiana teenager who died when the airplane he was piloting crashed into the Pacific Ocean that winds had been gusty. 17 year-old Haris Suleman of Plainfield was killed in the July 22 plane crash off the coast of American Samoa during an around-the-world attempt. His father and co-pilot, 58-year-old Babar Suleman, remains missing. The NTSB report just released said the dad told the ground crewman during preflight checks the weather seemed fine. That's when the crewman told him about the winds. The crewman says as the plane took off the wind was "very strong” and the plane moved up and down and side to side.
