Seems its confirmed he died inside the plane, but not sure if it was just after landing or just before.
A great singer I have to say, though I know his music only since a few years ago...

R.I.P

Indeed, a great and very diverse entertainer has left us. R.I.P. indeed.

Sad news, RIP, great singer!

Question... does an aircraft in Holland get impounded for a period of time if someone dies on it? It's that way in the US, or was anyway.

I believe that the general rule as to someone dying on an aircraft is that death is not declared until the person is out of the a/c to prevent possible impoundment, unless it is believe to be a criminal act. It is possible the seat cushions may have to be replaced and the area cleaned to be on the safe side, especially if some body fluids and substances leak out. Apparently this gentleman, a major inlfuence in R&B music and preformers in the 1960's and a R&R Hall of Fame member, was obese and probably had underlying medical problems. It's too bad they couldn't revive him during the flight, but sometimes you can't with the limited equipment available.

This question has already been answered in this thread. And the thread also says that doesn't happen anymore in the US. Woman Found Dead On DL53 (by airbuske Aug 30 2010 in Civil Aviation)

Unless there's reason to believe the deceased was contagious, it's pretty much business as usual for a medical inbound.

I will debunk this myth yet again.

The reason people are rarely (but not never) declared dead on an airplane, is either a)there's nobody qualified (or willing) to make that assessment onboard, or b) the first thing to be done when an airplane is gated is to get the patient off the plane to allow more room to work on them.

It has nothing to do with impounding or quarantining.

Hazmat cleaners will be called in, but unless there's something unusual about it it'll be treated as if someone defecated or vomited in the seat.

Safe - thanks for bringing a bit of Burke-style humor in.

We are all sad that he has passed... But where better than at an airport?

I had a friend who died in a massage parlour. Thats probably the only better place to die in other than an airport.

The gentleman was 70 and may simply have died of "old age" for all we know. Was this really necessary?

Blueflyer, people don't die of "old age" in the 21st century at age 70. If he had a heart attack, it was caused by coronory disease, which was the was either genetic in origin or caused by something else.

Right...I was in high school in the 60's when he had a few singles released.
My Burke fav was "Cry to me".......always like that one.
Also, he put a lot into his performances..

happy landings to you and yours.
safe
