This plane crash was close to home yesterday, in the small town of Kirksville, MO, a town in northeast Missouri where Nate and I attended college at Truman State University. Two Survived, five are missing, and the rest of the 15 passengers were found dead in the cabin, including the two crew-members. CNN does not comment on who the identities of the passengers, and I don’t know who the individuals were, but I will say that rumor has it that the plane was full of Deans from other Universities which were flying in for a conference. Sad.
“KIRKSVILLE, Missouri (AP) — A twin-engine turboprop commuter plane crashed in the woods about three miles from the airport where it was preparing to land, killing at least eight of the 15 people on board, officials said.”
