The loss of an aircraft is a Federal matter, and Federal authorities have jurisdiction over the investigation. While the NYPD would certainly be asked to be a party to the investigation, Federal law states that all aircraft accidents involving US registered aircraft or aircraft on US soil are the responsibility of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). Initial notification would be to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

In a case such as this, as soon as there was any indication that a criminal act was suspected or involved, the FBI would be called in to head the that aspect of the Investigation.

This would be a high profile case to the Feds, as the aircraft would have to operated under 14 CFR Part 135 rules, and the company would hold an FAA Air Carrier Certificate. See more »

"You're making my skin crawl"
15 December 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This is one bloody crime scene here. Jerry Orbach and Jesse Martin catch a multiple homicide of a shuttle helicopter to JFK Airport, six passengers and a pilot, one of the passengers a child.

The investigation leads to one of the passengers who was a member of some kind of self improvement group with an exclusive membership, only people with at least seven figures in the asset column. Michael McKean is our group leader and he gets the idea that a member of his group who is currently staying with he an his wife Annette O'Toole is having an affair with him. Which offends his alpha male sensibilities since McKean has been eying his wife Dana Wheeler-Nicholson.

The evidence gathered is pretty overwhelming and McKean doesn't even go to trial, but pleads out.

That is not the end of the story. I will not reveal that because it is too bizarre, not a hint you have to see it for yourself. But Angie Harmon has that lovely piece of dialog that's at the title of this review.
