WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (WWLP) – One person was killed after a business jet experienced severe turbulence on Saturday, forcing the aircraft to make an emergency landing at Bradley International Airport.

Five people were aboard a Bombardier jet when it was shaken by turbulence late Friday afternoon while traveling from Keene, New Hampshire, to Leesburg, Virginia.

According to the National Transportation Safety Board, a Bombardier Challenger 300 was forced to land in Windsor Locks, Connecticut. A person onboard was taken to a nearby hospital and later died. Safety Board Investigators did interview two crew members and surviving passengers about the deadly encounter with turbulence.

They did not provide details including whether the victim was wearing a seatbelt.

Connecticut State Police have identified the passenger as Dana Hyde of Maryland. Police were called to the airport around 3:50 Friday afternoon for medical assistance after the private plane landed.

Hyde’s death comes days after seven people were injured in a turbulence event aboard a Lufthansa flight on Thursday. A passenger told the Associated Press that the cabin announced to passengers that the plane had fallen one-thousand feet during the turbulence.

According to data from the FAA spanning 2009 to 2021; 30 passengers and 116 crew members were seriously injured by turbulence. Compared to the millions that fly without incident each year, it’s a low percentage.

Those figures, though, only account for commercial carrier planes with more than nine seats so the incident at Bradley International airport would not count.

Investigators have removed the cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder as they gather information. The NTSB will release a preliminary report in two to three weeks.
