Moreover, it was his own plane crash. His father was a corporate pilot, so Halladay had grown up around planes and had flying in his blood.

Authorities said Halladay's plane, an ICON A5 light sport aircraft, crashed 10 miles west of St. Petersburg, Fla., around 1 p.m. Halladay, 40, was the only one aboard. The spokesperson said they are now engaged in a recovery effort. Investigators could not immediately confirm how many people were in the plane at the time of the crash. "It is with the heaviest of hearts that we pass along our condolences to Brandy, Ryan and Braden", the statement said.

The National Transportation Safety Board confirmed it is investigating the crash, though it could be 12 to 24 months before it determines what caused the crash.
