Teen Pilot on Around-World Flight Found Dead in Samoa
The body of an Indiana teenage pilot attempting to fly around the world with his father was found off the coast of American Samoa after their single-engine plane crashed in the South Pacific, Coast Guard officials and family said Wednesday. Haris Suleman, 17, was found unresponsive by the American Samoa Marine Patrol, while his father, Babar Suleman, remained missing, officials said.

A dreadful time in aviation at the moment. I think this story is being overshadowed by MH at the moment. Very sad indeed.
