Uparently both pilots were uncounsions when the plane crashed. It is beleived that they were about 50 children also on board on their way to a Summer camp.Stelios

Apparently the enviornmental system on the aircraft did not work right, passangers lacked oxygen. I also the news reported that some of the bodies were frozen.Charles Huckelbery

So it sounds exactly like the Payne Stewart Lear Jet crash 4 years ago: Somehow they depressurized, due to a faulty valve of some sort, hypoxia set in, followed by loss of consciousness and eventually fuel exhaustion, causing the crash. An airforce jet sent up to investigate the Stewart aircraft after it ignored repeated attempts to contact it by ATC reported the cockpit windows frozen over on the inside. Apparently, they were cruising on autopilot when the incident occured and just passed out from the hypoxia and never regained consciousness. At least we know now that nobody, including the 48 children, suffered, as they were likely all unconscious. Wow.http://www.alaska.faa.gov/fai/Clipart/SmlAcft.gifAlex ChristoffN562ZBaltimore, MD
