In the audio tapes from the air traffic control tower, Keith Weiner, the pilot of the Cessna 210, is heard declaring an emergency and announcing that he is turning back to the airport right after takeoff. Weiner makes no mention as to the exact nature of the problem before disappearing off the radio.

Investigators say Weiner, 63, his wife Lisa, 51, their 14-year-old daughter Isabel, and her 14-year-old friend Lucy Walsh were all killed in the crash. They were heading to Montauk for the weekend.

Weiner also owned an art gallery in Piermont called Galerie CAVU.
