Pilatus PC-12 Crashed in Montana

Yesterday afternoon a Pilatus PC-12/45 (N128CM) crashed in Butte (KBTM), Montana (USA) killing all 14 persons on board - mostly children.

The single-engine turboprop plane carrying children on a school ski trip nose-dived into a cemetery and burst into flames. The aircraft was believed to have been suffering technical difficulties and had diverted from its original flight path to Butte, but crashed prior to arrival.

    I just read a story on Yahoo News and speculation is now that icing was involved. But remember it is Yahoo. I will wait on the NTSB and FAA.
