Indiana Teen Pilot Dead After Plane Crashes

An Indiana teenager attempting to fly around the world is dead after his small plane crashed near American Samoa.

Seventeen-year-old Haris Suleman and his father were trying to fly around the world to raise funds for a school in Pakistan. 

The two took off from Indianapolis on June 19th in a single-engine Beech A36 Bonanza. 

They had hoped to return on July 26th. 

An official says the plane crashed into the ocean Tuesday night and Haris' body has been recovered. 

His father is still missing.
