Learjet registered to Pat Robertson crashes

The plane was registered to Virginia-based Robertson Asset Management. The company is owned by Robertson and is separate from the Christian Broadcasting Network, spokeswoman Angell Vasko said.

She said Robertson was not on the plane and rents it out because he uses it infrequently.

"We're still trying to figure out who was on the plane," she said. "It's not Dr. Robertson or (anyone) related to CBN or related to Dr. Robertson's individual businesses."

The company has a leasing agreement with International Jet Charter of Norfolk, Virginia, which chartered the plane Friday, Vasko said.

Mark Ousley, International Jet's sales and marketing director, declined to comment.

"Thanks for taking care of that tax write-off!"
