Rockefeller Dead

+David Rockefeller son has died in a plane crash. The son of billionaire philanthropist David Rockefeller died Friday morning when his private plane crashed in bad weather while departing Westchester County Airport.

Dr. Richard Rockefeller, 65, was piloting his single-engine plane back to his Maine home on the morning after celebrating his dad’s 99th birthday, Rockefeller family spokesman Fraser Seitel said. The pair shared a pleasant dinner Thursday night, just hours before Rockefeller’s Piper PA-46 plane left the tarmac on its disastrously brief flight at 8:08 a.m. from Runway 16.
