NBCNews. A sightseeing plane went down today east of Ketchikan, Alaska, on Thursday at about 6 p.m. local time.
All nine people aboard a cruise excursion plane that crashed in southeastern Alaska Thursday are dead, the Alaska Division of State Troopers said. ... The plane, operated by Promech Air, a Ketchikan-based sightseeing company, was running a shore excursion for eight passengers from the Holland America Line ship the MS Westerdam, which set off to Alaska from Seattle on June 20, Holland America Line said in a statement.
The plane was found on a granite rock face about 800 feet above Ella Lake. The cause of the crash is not yet known, but weather conditions were heavily overcast all day. Bodies could not be recovered due to bad weather and until next of kin is notified the names of the deceased will not be released.
