PLAINFIELD, Ind. (AP) - A family friend of an Indiana teenager killed when his plane crashed during an around-the-world flight says the teen’s older brother is scheduled to arrive Friday in American Samoa.

Azher Khan says 29-year-old Cyrus Suleman will visit a hospital in the capital city of Pago Pago where the body of his 17-year-old brother, Haris Suleman, was taken following Tuesday’s crash in the Pacific Ocean near Pago Pago’s airport.

Khan says the Coast Guard still hasn’t found the body of 58-year-old Babar Suleman, who was traveling with his son.

Haris Suleman had hoped to set the record for the fastest circumnavigation around the world in a single-engine airplane with the youngest pilot in command.

The Sulemans left Indiana on June 19 and were expected to arrive back in the state Saturday.
