HAZARD, Ky. (AP) - A federal spokeswoman says two people on
board a plane traveling from Maryland to Mississippi were killed
when the aircraft went down in eastern Kentucky.
Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Arlene Salac told
The Associated Press that investigators were at the scene "at
first light" on Wednesday, looking into what caused the crash.
Salac says the plane went down about 30 miles from Hazard, in a
mountainous area of Leslie County on Tuesday.
FAA records list the Hawker Beechcraft 58 as registered to
Island Trading Ltd. of Woodbine, Md. Salac said the plane was
traveling from Frederick, Md., to Olive Branch, Miss.
The National Transportation Safety Board and Kentucky State
Police are also investigating the crash.
