At Least 17 Die in Colo. Plane Crash
By STEVEN K. PAULSON

ASPEN, Colo. (AP) - A private airplane crashed Thursday near an airport in this ski resort town, killing at least 17 people, authorities said.
A flight plan for the Gulfstream jet listed 18 people aboard, and 17 bodies were recovered after the crash, said Joe DiSalvo, a spokesman for the Pitkin County Sheriff's Office.
Eyewitnesses saw the airplane go down northwest of the airport shortly after 7 p.m. Wreckage was strewn over about 100 yards.
Madeleine Osberger, who was driving on a highway near the airport, said she saw the airplane in what appeared to be its final approach before it crashed.
``Maybe two minutes later, I turned the corner and saw flames,'' said Osberger.

NewsCenter on ABC 6 broke the story a little while ago, they were saying that 18 people were on board the aircraft, but only 17 bodies had been recovered so far, any word yet on if there might be a survivor. I hope that those killed in the crash rest in peace and that their families and friends be consoled in this time of great suffering.

How terribly sad. My prayers go to the souls who have departed this earth, their families and friends. Without disrespect to this topic, I think there should be a civil aviation memorial somewhere in the world for all of the passengers and crewmembers who perish in air disasters. It would be nice if airlines worldwide would conribute to this financially; but they probably would not want to draw attention to the statistics and would not want their name associated with it. If I win the lottery, I'll do it myself!

I totally agree. However, airlines don't like for people to be reminded that airplanes do in rare instances crash and lives can be lost, so I don't think they would be willing to fund it. Try the FAA or NTSB maybe?

To follow on what Timbabwe just posted, the local media here in Los Angeles have caught on to the unique registration and are holding vigil on this story to be the first ones on the scenes should this tragedy involve anyone high profile. KCAL9 has already said, POSSIBLY a famous person involved. The media here is so bad. They keep showing the weather reports in Aspen and keep saying they will be the first on the story when they get identities. For anyone who lives in LA, you all have to agree, had they had full confirmation locally that the crash didn't involve anyone high profile, there is no way they would even bother to report it.
