A Gulfstream III private jet with nine people on board, has crashed into the sea off Venezuela.
The Mirror UK reports that the plane came down 30 miles from the coastline near Macanao, northern Venezuela.
The Gulfstream III jet, which is commonly used by the wealthy and elite, left Simon Bolivar International Airport on Tuesday afternoon and was heading for Santiago Marino Caribbean International Airport before it crashed due to ‘technical error’.
According to El Sol de Margarita , Alfredo Pulido Pinto, commander of the Integral Defense Operational Zone of that state, reported that an action team was immediately deployed to deal with the situation.
Meanwhile, as at the time of filing this report, the condition of the nine people on board the private jet was yet to be ascertained.
