Plane crashes in Des Plaines River Blocks From My Home

This is literally right down the street from my house here in Buffalo Grove IL and the third time in memory a plane has crashed on approach here at Executive Airport which is a small airfield that accepts lear Jets and smaller. It used to be called Palwaukee Airport from it's inception decades ago 'til the recent name change.

Wasn't much left of it sadly as it apparently broke up in midair and finally settled in a little section of the Des Plaines river a couple miles down the road.  :(

Aircraft: Learjet 35 (twin-jet)
Origin: Oakland County Intl
Destination: Chicago Executive

Chicago Breaking News: "A plane has crashed in a forest preserve south of the Chicago Executive Airport in Wheeling, airport spokeswoman Laura Witlox said.

Video of the scene shows the plane broken up in the river near Euclid Avenue.

The Learjet was making an approach to a runway at the airport about 1:30 p.m. when it went down about a quarter-mile north of Euclid Avenue, according to Tony Molinaro of the Federal Aviation Administration.

The plane was on final approach to runway 34, had been cleared for normal approach and was making a normal approach when it went down in the Des Plaines River about a mile south of the airport, according to a recorded message from the FAA.

The FAA said that the plane's tail number is N720RA and that a pilot and copilot were on the plane. Their conditions are unknown. The agency was unsure if there were any more people on the plane.

The agency did not know the plane's departure airport.

Witlox said it was a Royal Air cargo jet."
