Ten People Killed in Air Taxi Plane Crash at Soldotna Airport

Two families from Greenville, South Carolina, on their way to a bear viewing lodge, have been identified as nine of the 10 people killed in an airplane crash at the Soldtona Airport.  Federal Investigators from the N.T.S.B. say they are just beginning their investigation to determine what caused the de Havilland DHC-3-T Otter to crash and burn feet from the lone runway at the Soldotna Municipal Airport.  The crash killed both families and the highly experienced pilot of the Otter in the worst aviation accident in Alaska in more than a decade.  As the group prepared to leave the Soldotna Airport, the weather was reportedly cloudy, with light winds.  Just after 11:20 a.m., something went very wrong as the plane attempted to take off.  The N.T.S.B. can be counted on to do a thorough and professional job of exploring every possible cause of this terrible crash.  While a preliminary report may be issued in as few as 30 days, a final report may take a year or more to complete, depending on a number of factors.
