Monday, Nov. 22, 2004

HOUSTON ? A private jet that was en route to Houston to pick up former President G.H.W. Bush clipped a light pole and crashed Monday as it approached Hobby Airport in thick fog, killing all three people aboard.

The Gulfstream G-1159A jet, coming into Houston, went down about 6:15 a.m. in an undeveloped area 1.5 miles south of the airport, officials said.

"The plane that unfortunately crashed was flying in from Dallas to pick former President Bush up, with myself as a travel aide and a Secret Service agent," said Tom Freschette, spokesman for the former President Bush in Houston.
Bush was going to give a lecture for the Quayaquil, Ecuador, Chamber of Commerce, Freschette said, adding, "It's very sad."
