Jonathan Rosen, 47, the chief executive of Entaire Global Companies, was the pilot of the single-engine Cessna P210N when it went down and burst into flames Friday afternoon at DeKalb-Peachtree Airport, FOX 5 of Atlanta reported.

None of the passengers survived the crash.

The victims were identified as Rosen, his 14-year-old relative, the teen’s friend, and another family friend, the outlet reported.

Video shows flames consuming the aircraft as witnesses look on in horror.

“It crashed, it landed, and I don’t know if it was just a hard landing but it flipped and then it caught fire,” photographer Keith Berry, who witnessed the crash, told the outlet.

“It happened pretty fast. And the fire, it turned over and smoked for a second, and engulfed in flames.”

No cause has been released for the crash.
