Wrecked Plane Flown by N.Y. Couple Recovered

ROCHESTER (AP) -

The wreckage of a plane that crashed in September off the coast of Jamaica and the remains of the couple aboard have been recovered from water almost two miles deep, the family said Wednesday.

Larry and Jane Glazer, both 68, experienced pilots and prominent business owners, were flying from Rochester to Naples, Florida, on Sept. 5 when air traffic controllers lost contact with their single-engine turboprop. With the couple apparently incapacitated, the plane flew on its own for 1,700 miles before running out of fuel and slamming into the sea north of the Caribbean island.

U.S. fighter pilots who shadowed the aircraft after it failed to respond to radio contacts reported seeing the pilot slumped over and the plane’s windows frosting over.

The plane and remains were found last week Monday and were transported by ship to New York.

Larry Glazer was a prominent businessman who redeveloped downtown Rochester properties. Jane Glazer founded a household-products catalog company..
