As we wait for more news about what caused the crash of a Boeing 777 that killed two in San Francisco on Saturday, the NTSB confirmed another fatal plane crash in Alaska Sunday that killed all ten people aboard. At least one NTSB investigator heading to San Francisco will be diverted to Alaska to investigate the cause of the crash of a de Havilland DHC-3 Otter air taxi in the Kenai Peninsula town of Soldotna, Alaska’s KTUU reported. The crash happened on the runway as the plane was taking off. “The fixed-wing aircraft was located fully engulfed at the airport and the flames were put out by CES,” Alaska State Troopers said in a statement, but none of the nine passengers nor the pilot survived.
