Clues sought in fatal plane crash

From Times Wire Reports

Investigators had little more than ash and blackened shards of metal to sift through as they tried to figure out what caused a twin-engine plane to crash shortly after taking off, killing all 10 people on board.

“The aircraft was pretty much consumed by fire,” said Keith Holloway, a spokesman for the National Transportation Safety Board. “When there aren’t identifiable pieces, sometimes we don’t know right away what was working and what wasn’t working.”

A preliminary crash report could be finished late this week or early next, Holloway said, two days after nine members of a dermatology clinic and the pilot who was flying them died in eastern Utah.

Moab was one of nine regular stops for the team from Southwest Skin and Cancer/Red Canyon Aesthetics & Medical Spa in Cedar City, a rapidly growing town of 28,000 in southwestern Utah.
