Reports of an emergency landing were received on Friday at Raleigh-Durham International Airport. It was a small plane, able to carry no more than ten people. The plane’s co-pilot, Charles Crooks, was on board for takeoff but not for landing.

At a house in Fuquay-Varina, Charles Crooks was discovered in the backyard. Tragically, he did not make it out of the plane crash alive.  WRAL News spoke with a family living in the Copain Cove area who said they were inside their house when they heard a huge bang outside.  Nothing was visible in their backyard, but cops quickly descended upon the neighborhood.  Charles Crooks was discovered that night, entangled in their garden trees.

Charles Crooks, according to investigators, either fell out of the plane or leaped out of it while it was in the air. He did not have a parachute.

His father responded, “I can’t imagine what occurred.” As the saying goes, “We’ll work it out.”  According to his father, Charles Crooks was a certified pilot and worked as a flight teacher for almost a year.  They are awaiting the results of the investigation into the circumstances surrounding his passing.
