From KOCO out of Oklahoma City:
A source close to Sen. Jim Inhofe has confirmed that his son, Dr. Perry Inhofe, was on board a plane that crashed near Owasso, Okla. on Sunday. Perry Inhofe was killed in the crash.
Dr. Perry Inhofe was an orthopedic surgeon in Tulsa. According to his biographical information on the Central States Orthopedics website, Inhofe attended Duke University and studied biomedical engineering and electrical engineering. He graduated in 1984.
Perry Inhofe then attended Washington University in St. Louis for medical school. He graduated in 1988 and did postgraduate training at Barnes Hospital in St. Louis and the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine.
The Tulsa International Airport said the pilot of the plane issued an alert at 3:45 p.m. Sunday asking for immediate assistance. The plane crashed five miles north of the airport.
Authorities said the plane crashed around 4 p.m. in a wooded area. Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers confirmed on Sunday that one person died in the crash.
Sadly and ironically this story (from which picture is taken) ran on General Aviation News website just two months ago. Celebrating the tradition of flying in the Inhofe family. Our deepest sympathy and prayers for your family Senator Inhofe.
