FAA investigating plane crash in Duplin County

JACKSONVILLE, N.C. -

The FAA is investigating after an airplane destined for a small island near Detroit crashed outside Jacksonville in Duplin County late Monday night.

The preliminary information suggests that the P. 149 aircraft left the Albert J. Ellis Airport in Onslow County on Sunday with the Grosse Ile Airport in Grosse Ile Township, Mich. as the destination, the FAA said.

According to the FAA and local officials, the pilot did not file a flight plan or receive air traffic control service.

When the family reported that the aircraft never made it to Michigan, an ALNOT (ALert NOTice) was issued. An ALNOT notifies local authorities and search and rescue agencies that an aircraft has gone missing.

The FAA will release the aircraft registration number when local authorities confirm the pilot's name and condition.
