By Keith Coffman DENVER (Reuters) - Three people were killed and two injured on Sunday when a single-engine airplane crashed in a field adjacent to a runway at a northern Colorado airport, authorities said. Peter Knudson, spokesman for the National Transportation Safety Board, said the Piper PA-46 aircraft went down shortly before noon near the Erie Municipal Airport, about 25 miles northwest of Denver. "We don't know yet know if it was taking off or landing," said Knudson, adding that five people were on board the plane, which crashed in clear weather. Roger Rademacher, assistant fire chief with Mountain View Fire Rescue, said emergency crews found two people dead inside the wreckage of the six-seat airplane when they arrived at the scene.
In a trial set to open on Tuesday, nothing short of this city’s future is at stake, with a judge to decide whether to approve a blueprint to eliminate more than $7 billion of its estimated $18 billion in debts.
