Plane Crash in Branson Kills Four

MARCH 20, 2006 - Posted at 3:41 p.m. CST

 

BRANSON, MO - The Federal Aviation Administration says a small plane carrying four people crashed in the resort city of Branson, Missouri today, killing everyone aboard.

FAA spokesman Tony Molinaro says the twin-engine plane crashed near the Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum along the town's main entertainment strip, Missouri 76.  The names of the dead were not immediately released. 

Molinaro said the plane took off from Point Lookout, Missouri, around 12:30 p.m. and was headed to Lubbock, Texas, when the pilot reported some kind of difficulty and tried to return to the airport.

Robert Whitson, a clerk at Ripley's, said the crashed plane was burning.  He said it hit a storage unit behind the museum. 

The National Weather Service said skies were overcast in the area but there were no storms or other unusual weather at the time of the crash.
