    Bombardier Challenger Plane Crashes in Naples, Florida

    Robert A. Clifford, Leading Aviation Attorney who Has Handled Crash of Bombardier Challenger Aircraft, Available to Speak

    A Bombardier Challenger 604 jet crashed on I-75 about 3:15 p.m. EST on February 9, 2024, killing two people. The small executive jet reportedly had five people on board including two pilots when the plane crashed into a wall and involved at least one vehicle on the highway.

    Robert A. Clifford, a nationally recognized aviation attorney who sits on the Board of Trustees of the Naples Children & Education Foundation who handled the case of a Bombardier Challenger jet that crashed in Colorado, is available to speak on this matter.

    “I’ve handled cases involving every major plane crash in the United States in the last 40 years. I’ve also handled numerous executive plane crashes, including the crash of a similar Bombardier Challenger jet that killed the teenage son of NBC Executive Dick Ebersol and his wife, actress Susan Saint James,” Clifford said. “Speculation now will lead to many possibilities that caused this horrific crash. The black boxes on the plane hold a lot of answers, but I have found from my experience that these crashes are not simply solved. They are complex events, and the fact that three people survived is a miracle, although their injuries aren’t known at this time.”

    The plane took off from Columbus, Ohio, and was set to land at Naples Airport before it crashed in what some witnesses described as an “explosion” near mile marker 107 near Pine Ridge Road. A huge plume of smoke engulfed the plane. The highway was closed in both directions.

    It is being reported that the twin-engine plane lost both engines, considered to be a catastrophic failure. A National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigator was on the scene Friday afternoon with more expected to arrive Saturday. The jet reportedly was chartered by Hop-A-Jet Worldwide out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
