A Mozambique Airlines plane carrying 33 people crashed in a remote border area, killing all on board, Namibian media reported today. Flight TM470 from Maputo, the Mozambican capital, did not land as scheduled in Luanda, the Angolan capital, yesterday afternoon. The Namibia Press Agency quoted Bollen Sankwasa, a deputy police commissioner, as saying the plane crashed in a national park near the border with Angola.
Four people, including an infant boy, also died in a plane crash near the remote western Alaska village of Saint Marys last night. Six of the 10 people aboard survived. The single-engine, turboprop Cessna 208 was a Hageland Aviation flight from Bethel to Mountain Village and Saint Marys, said Kathy Roser, a spokeswoman for Era Alaska airline. Hageland is part of Era Alaska, Roser said. There was no immediate word on what might have caused the crash. (Read more plane crash stories.)
