An aircraft crashed into the Gulf of Mexico after circling in an "unresponsive" flight pattern for a while Thursday morning. It is believed that there was only one person on board -- a piliot who was apparently unconsious.
Earlier, the Air Force had scrambled two F-15 fighters to intercept and monitor the flight path of the plane circling over the Gulf of Mexico.
ABC News reports:
"Contact was lost with the pilot of the Cessna, which is being tracked on radar. Officials believe the plane, which has not been identified, has less than one hour of fuel left.
