Montana Plane Crash Kills At Least 14

During a botched landing in Montana, a small turboprop plane crashed into Butte's Holy Cross Cemetery and killed between 14 and 17 passengers, the Associated Press reports. An FAA spokesperson said that the aircraft—which originated in Oroville, CA—was originally headed for Bozeman, MT but changed course and headed for Butte. "We think that it was probably a ski trip for the kids," the spokesperson said, explaining the numerous children aboard. The group began their journey in San Diego, where an air transit official said the children looked to be bewteen the ages of 6 and 10. It appears the party changed planes in Oroville, though no flight plan was filed there. The fourth major American plane crash in fewer than four months, witnesses say they saw the ski trip turboprop nosedive to the ground, a mere 500 feet from its attempted landing place.
