5 Skydivers Dead in Plane Crash

Five people in a skydiving group are dead after a plane crashed in northwestern Montana Saturday. The Flathead County sheriff says there were no survivors.

The FAA says the plane went down shortly after takeoff at about 10:15 a-m Mountain time, and then burned.

The manager of the skydiving business says the Cessna 182 was carrying two skydiving instructors, two trainees and the pilot, all from Montana.
