KINGSTON, N.Y. (AP) — State police in New York have resumed a search for the pilot of a vintage military jet that crashed into ice on the Hudson River as it came in for a landing at a Kingston airport.

Authorities said divers went back into the water Sunday morning to look for pilot Michael Faraldi, 38, of Germantown, who is missing and feared dead.

The accident happened at about 1:30 p.m. Saturday near the Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge, which spans the river midway between Albany and New York City.

Faraldi was piloting the plane from Nashville, Tenn., to an airport in Ghent, N.Y., state police said.

The jet, a British-made BAC 167 Strikemaster, was headed to Kingston-Ulster Airport from an airfield Johnstown, Pa., when it went down, the Federal Aviation Administration said.
