NTSB Investigating Alaskan Tour Plane's Crash

Nine people, including the pilot, died June 25 when the sightseeing plane crashed 25 miles from Ketchikan, Alaska.

Weather conditions and the pilot's training are two areas of focus for NTSB investigators sent to examine the wreckage of a float-equipped DeHavilland DHC-3T (Turbine Otter) airplane that crashed June 25 in mountainous terrain about 25 miles northeast of Ketchikan, Alaska. All nine people on board, including pilot Bryan Krill, were killed, according to NTSB and Alaska Dispatch News reports.

NTSB investigator Brice Banning heads the NTSB on-site team as lead investigator.

The sightseeing aircraft was operated by Ketchikan-based Promech Air, a company advertising itself as the largest air taxi operator in the area, ADN's Nathanial Herz reported.

NTSB reported the team includes a meteorologist "and another investigator who will look at the flight's operation, including the training of the pilot and his professional history."
