FAA: 4 killed in crash of small plane in Colorado

Members of K9 Search and Rescue Team Inc. were asked to join in the search for a downed aircraft that crashed  near Silverton, CO on Saturday, December 3, 2011. The single-engine plane was flying from Durango to Aspen when it crashed Saturday afternoon. Local officials say the crash site was about 1 miles north of Silverton. None of the victims' names have been released, and the cause of the crash was unknown. The Socata TB-21 left Durango at about 1:30 p.m. Saturday. About 40 minutes later its emergency beacon signal was detected near Silverton, The Denver Post reported. Temperatures in Silverton dipped to 4 degrees between Saturday night and Sunday morning, and 8 to 10 inches of snow had fallen at the scene after the crash, San Juan County Emergency Manager Kristina Maxfield said. The plane crashed in a rugged, heavily forested area up to 11,000 feet above sea level.
