California: Jewish Pilot Killed In Plane Crash While Flying To Sydney For Simcha

A Sydney man living in the U.S. and en route to Sydney for a friend’s wedding, died when his single-engine plane crashed near Hollister Airport in California.

28-year-old Benny Glattstein was heading back to Sydney for the wedding of close friend Jamie Enoch to Miriam Vickers.

Glattstein, a former Moriah College student, had planned a scheduled stop in Hawaii and was to be a groomsman at the wedding due to be held at Sydney’s Great Synagogue on Sunday, December 5.

He was an experienced pilot who had co-operated Australian Air Ferry…a professional service ferrying aircraft around the globe.

Authorities at the crash scene told media that the single-engined Mooney is a total wreck “with debris everywhere”.

Glattstein was the only person on board the aircraft.

  1. Is it just me or there seems to be something about Jewish people dying in these small airplanes.
    This is like the 5th or story this year I think.
