Three Die in Amazon Prime Air Plane Crash in Texas

Three Die in Amazon Prime Air Plane Crash in Texas

An Amazon Air Prime airplane crashed into Trinity Bay near Anahuac, TX, on February 23 in the afternoon. All three people who were on board the twin-engine Boeing 767 aircraft have passed away.

Witnesses reported the plan went into a nose dive, then crashed nose-first into the shallow marsh. Furthermore, they heard what sounded like lightning prior to the aircraft going down.

Along with the plane debris, the was a trail of debris in the water spanning one mile, consisting of everything from cardboard boxes to clothes Investigators are still searching for the black box recordings.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who have been affected,” said Atlas Air Chief Executive Officer Bill Flynn in a statement. “This is a sad time for all of us. Our team continues to work closely with the NTSB, the FAA and local authorities on the ground in Houston. We would like to commend the efforts of all of the first responders. We sincerely appreciate their efforts and support in the investigation.”

Two out of the three bodies have been identified. One of them was Mesa Airlines Capt. Sean Archuleta, a 36-year-old father and pilot, who was about to start his “dream job” flying for United Airlines. The other person was First Officer Conrad, a 44-year-old co-pilot.

Since 1982, the Boeing 767 has been used for passenger flights, as well as freighters and tankers for the U.S. Air Force. These planes were designed with a wide range of safety features, including improvements made to these systems over the years.

According to AirSafe, out of more than 1,300 of these aircraft, only two of them have accidentally crashed. However, there are several cases where 767s experienced emergency landings due to poor weather conditions or running out of fuel, been subject to hijackings, and suicide.

It may take between a year and 18 months for the National Transportation Board of Safety (NTSB) to determine the exact cause of the tragedy on Atlas Air Flight 3951. Yet, the black box recordings may reveal what exactly happened.
