    A small Cessna crashed into the Gulf of Mexico Thursday after two F-15 fighter jets tried to make contact with it. The military pilots said the Cessna’s windshield was iced over and the pilot was unresponsive. The FAA lost contact with the aircraft, which was flying from Louisiana to Florida’s west coast Thursday morning. Only one person was believed to be aboard the aircraft, and there were no signs that the pilot survived the crash even though the plane was intact and floating right-side-up in the water.
