Pilot killed in airport crash lists Taylor Swift as next of kin


The pilot killed last month in a plane crash at the Nashville International Airport listed country superstar Taylor Swift as his next of kin.

The Tennessean reported authorities have reached out to Swift's camp and her publicist stated the 23-year-old singer does not know the man who was identified as Michael Callan.

Investigators are still unsure how Callan flew undetected over an international border or why he circled the airport for nearly three hours before attempting to land the aircraft on October 29.

A preliminary report from the NTSB said Callan, a Canadian pilot, did not contact air traffic controllers prior to the crash.

It was six hours before the crash scene was discovered at the Nashville International Airport.

The incident remains under investigation.
