“Rescue crews have now managed to rappel down the fuselage where we expect to find the others, unfortunately we don’t anticipate finding anyone alive.”

One of the men believed dead was co-piloting the plane which was carrying his three children – between the ages of five and nine – who he had picked up for the Thanksgiving holiday.

According to Johnson the plane had been traveling around 230 mph when it crashed.
