Rochester Plane Crash Video?

A plane crash near Rochester airport has killed three people aboard the plane, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. The plane narrowly missed a house before flying into a nearby wood.

The Cessna 310 plane overshot a runway while landing and crashed at the end of the runway at Sierra Blanca Regional Airport in south-central New Mexico, US Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Lynn Lunsford said.

The plane came down in the woods 100 yards from the home of Doug an Lori Eaton, the Post Bulletin reports. He called 911 two minutes past midnight after the plane hit the ground and erupted into a fireball; she ran to the crash site and called out in vain for survivors as flames and smoke poured from the aircraft.

I'd like to know if there is video of the moment the plane crashes.

According to Captain Terry Walestski of the Olmsted County Sheriff's office, a distress call was received by air traffic controllers in the Twin Cities just before midnight on Wednesday, June 16. A report from the Sheriff's authority states that the plane is so badly damaged and burnt from the resulting fire that it has so far been impossible to identify the type of plane or the passengers onboard.

The Post-Bulletin says the crash is about one mile north of the Rochester International Airport. Firefighters were at the scene working flareups around the wreckage from burning fuel. Law enforcement were securing the scene for investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board.

The survivors, identified by New Mexico state police as 16-year-old Alexander Richey and 12-year-old Christopher Richey, were airlifted to a hospital in El Paso, Texas, said Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Lynn Lunsford. Their conditions were not immediately known. Killed in the crash were the boys' parents, 46-year-old Karl Lowell Richey and his wife, 44-year-old Keri Richey; and Rodney and Delaine Duree, both 50, and their son, 11-year-old Lake Duree.

At this point officials are unsure of the plane's origin or destination and they are not releasing the tail number of the plane yet.
