ROLLING PRAIRIE, Ind. Authorities searched a cornfield Tuesday for the remains of five people killed in the crash of a twin-engine plane that went down shortly after takeoff in foggy weather.

An Iowa marketing company had chartered the flight to take its co-founder and three employees on a business trip from Ankeny, Iowa, to South Bend, in northern Indiana.

Crash investigators had not determined the cause of Monday night's accident, but the plane began its return flight in poor weather, with limited visibility and fog.

"It was not a good night to fly,"Deputy Coroner John Sullivan said.

The Cessna 303 crashed about 10 miles southwest of South Bend, shortly after departing from South Bend Regional Airport, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

After takeoff, the pilot issued a distress call because of engine problems, said Brian Jones, a partner in Des Moines-based Two Rivers Marketing.

Investigators said the aircraft spiraled to the ground, killing the pilot and four passengers.

Debris and human remains were scattered over an area the size of a football field, Sullivan said. Crews used a crane to pull wreckage from the field, where it was embedded several feet into the earth.

Not IN South Bend but close. I live in South Bend so we've had alot of news about it.

It's sad. 4 people that perished were between the ages of 23-45.

Here's the South Bend Tribune article:
