Four men dead in Utah takeoff crash

29-05-2012

 

Surveillance video footage from the airport in St. George, Utah, shows a Cessna Skyhawk flying low down the length of the runway, then climbing rapidly before apparently crashing about 300 yards off the end of the runway over the weekend. The late-night crash killed all four men on board, who ranged in age from 20 to 28. Because the airport is uncontrolled, there were no witnesses to the crash and the wreckage was not discovered until the next morning, about four hours after the crash. The video footage may provide only limited clues about what happened, since only the plane’s lights and strobes are visible in the final frames. Investigators don’t yet know where the plane was headed; calm VFR conditions prevailed at the time of the accident.
