The BAC 167 Strikemaster (N167SM) splashed down into an ice-covered portion of the river, near the Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge, after performing a low-pass at Kingston-Ulster Airport. It had taken off from John Murtha Johnstown-Cambria County Airport in Pennsylvania. It was owned by Dragon Aviation, a Delaware-based company that performs in air shows across the country.
