Eight Feared Dead After Small Plane Crash Off Coast of North Carolina

A plane carrying eight fowl hunters crashed early Sunday morning.

Authorities have been unable to find any survivors since the crash.

They are all now feared dead, including four teenagers.

Fowl Trip

The group was on a fowl hunting trip when the plane went down.

Just prior to the plane crashing, one of the group members had posted a bunch of pictures celebrating a successful trip…

As you can see in the pictures, the group included four teenagers.

Additionally, there was the pilot, Hunter parks, a business owner in North Carolina, and his girlfriend, Stephanie Fulcher.

So far, authorities have been able to recover only one body found in a debris field.

Carteret County Sheriff Asa Buck has little hope they will fund survivors.

During a press conference on Monday, Buck stated, “We have no indication that anyone survived the crash.”

Parks appears to have been the trip’s organizer for the teenage boys.

His business partner, Tom Harrison, stated, “He was one of the most generous people I know, and he had a duck hunting property and he had invited a large number of youth and veterans.

“There’s a special duck season, a one-day duck season for youth and veterans, and he had invited them all to his property to duck hunt.

“And they had hunted there Saturday and were still in Hyde County at lunch time yesterday and flew home yesterday when the accident happened.”

Carteret County Public Schools added, “We are incredibly saddened as we join with the Down East and Eastern North Carolina community as we await official word on the airplane crash off the coast of Drum Inlet, North Carolina.

“Crisis teams are on school campuses to support students, staff and families.”

The group was flying in a single-engine Pilatus PC-12 when it started to act erratically, then disappeared from radar.
