Private Plane Carrying Four Passengers Crashed Off Of East Hampton Main Beach

Plane crashes into ocean off Long Island coast

The search covered more than 33 hours and saturated a 646 square-mile area before it was called off, the Coast Guard said.

Also on board the plane was Krupinski's wife, Bonnie Krupinski, 70; grandson Will Maerov, 22; and the pilot, Jon Dollard, 47.

Newsday reports that inside the plane was Ben Krupinski, 70, who has built homes for wealthy and famous clients, including Martha Stewart and Billy Joel.

Private fishing vessels, the United States Coast Guard, and East Hampton Town Marine Patrol units joined in a search and located a debris field about 1.5 miles south of Amagansett's Indian Wells Beach a short time later, police said.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation, but locals told The Post on Saturday that a nasty storm was spotted off the coast just before the small craft went down.

Bernard Krupinski grew up in East Hampton before starting his business, Ben Krupinski Builders, there. "I can't confirm that was the cause", he said on Saturday afternoon.
