The student pilot at the helm of a plane when it crashed in Connecticut intentionally downed the small aircraft, his instructor has said. The plane crashed into a utility pole and burst into flames. 28-year-old student pilot, Feras Freitekh was killed. He was a Jordanian national who first entered the U.S. in 2012 on a temporary student visa to attend flight school, in what could be considered a chilling echo of the September 11 terrorists. His instructor told investigators the crash "was not an accident," according to The New York Times.
