The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the crash of a twin-engine airplane into the Pacific Ocean off Half Moon Bay on Saturday, a federal official said.

The plane, a twin-turboprop deHavilland DHC-6, went down about 2:15 p.m., said Lynn Lunsford, a spokesman for the FAA.

If you, like me, were left wondering what happened to those on board, the pilot and a single passenger were found dead.

From the LA times:

"... when a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter reached the location, the crew found the plane upside down in the water, its occupants still inside, said Petty Officer Matthew West."

I hope family and friends are able to find eventual peace and some sort of explanation for the crash.
