Washington a in a stunning defeat for president Reagan the Republican controlled Senate thursday night approved by one vote a 1984 budget relying on tax increases of $9.9 billion next year and More than $74 billion Over three years to reduce swollen Federal deficits. The approval by a 50-49 vote was the worst setback Reagan has suffered in the Senate since his presidency began two and a half years ago. It came just two Days after Reagan in a nationally broadcast news conference vowed tuesday night to veto any Bill London a loss of oxygen was the likeliest explanation for the ghost flight of a West German executive Jet that veered off course flew across Northern Europe with no one at the controls and crashed into the sea killing All three people aboard British pilots said thursday. The pilotless Odyssey ended Over the North Atlantic 250 Miles South of Iceland wednesday when the $2 million Lear Jet apparently ran out of fuel and plummeted into the water. A search for the wreckage was called off Early thursday and the three crewmen a All of them pilots a were presumed dead. Air traffic a Mph the West German charter company that owned the american built plane said it was on a 450-mile test flight from Vienna Austria to Hamburg West Germany a biggest port. It failed to land in Hamburg and then cruised apparently on automatic Pilot at 43,000 feet across West Germany Holland and Britain with a Pilot co Pilot and passenger aboard. Nato fighter pilots scrambled to intercept the Jet As radar blips showed it veering off course. Two British pilots edged their phantom fighters to within 30 feet of the White Jet plane As it flew Over Scotland that would increase taxes. The Senate approved the High tax plan after failing in six previous attempts during the Day to pass a budget. It rejected the House passed democratic budget plan and five other spending plans by republicans sharply divided Over taxes. One of those Defeated was the plan eventually adopted.

A the Only thing that we could think of was that either they had some kind of Cabin condition poisoning or there was rapid decompression or loss of oxygen which can be the Raf jets eventually peeled away and the ghost Jet flew Over the North Atlantic. The Blip on the radar screen vanished somewhere Southeast of Iceland. Air Force jets searched the area thursday but found no Trace of wreckage. The planets emergency doors were closed so it was believed unlikely the passenger and Crew had bailed out. One theory was that the planets oxygen system failed after the Crew switched to automatic Pilot and went into the Cabin to perform a depressurization test.

Altogether 21 republicans joined 29 democrats in voting for the budget plan while 32 republicans and 17 democrats voted against it. Illinois senators Charles h. Percy a Republican and Alan j. Dixon a Democrat both voted for the budget plan. The spending plan would increase defense spending 6 percent rather than the to percent requested by Reagan and spend about $11 billion More on non defense programs than the president wants.
