NTSB Investigator Headed To Plane Crash Site in Montana

MOIESE, Mont. (AP) - A National Transportation Safety Board investigator is headed to the site of a small plane crash that killed two Missoula men and two Kalispell newspaper reporters.

NTSB officials say Van McKenny will be the crash's lead investigator. McKenny has investigated several small plane crashes in recent years.

He was traveling from Los Angeles to western Montana and did not return a call for comment Thursday.

Authorities found the four bodies Wednesday in the wreckage on a hillside near the National Bison Range. Pilot Sonny Kless rented the plane on Sunday. Friend Brian Williams and reporters Erika Hoefer and Melissa Weaver were also on board for the sightseeing trip.

Authorities were hiking to the site Thursday to try to recover the bodies.
