TRAVEL Plane crash kills 4 in Michigan



Published: Sat, February 5, 2005 @ 12:00 a.m.



The plane was scheduled to land in Ohio.

NILES, Mich. (AP) -- A twin-engine plane traveling to Ohio crashed Friday morning in southwestern Michigan in dense fog, killing four people, the state police said.

The crash occurred about 9:30 a.m. in a cornfield near the Indiana state line, said George Losey, a radio operator with the state police.

The plane was flying from Sheboygan, Wis., to Lebanon, Ohio, according to Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Elizabeth Isham Cory. The plane was a Beechcraft Baron 58 registered to a Wisconsin airplane leasing company, Beech Leasing in Sheboygan.

People in the area said they heard a loud boom and felt the ground shake.

Albert Benjamin, who was fishing nearby, told WSBT-TV in South Bend, Ind., that the plane "pretty much disintegrated. It was all in pieces and strung over a pretty good area."

The pilot filed a flight plan stating that the Warren County Airport in Lebanon, which is in southwestern Ohio, was the destination for a business trip, said Brian Carr, manager of the Warren County Airport.
