FAA records show that the 1996 Socata TBM 700 was registered just nine days before it left Gadsden, Alabama, on a flight to Montrose, Colorado, on Saturday. It crashed into a reservoir about 25 miles from the destination airport. The turboprop single was registered to an Alabama LLC, and made a fuel stop in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, before continuing the trip to Colorado. The NTSB briefed reporters that the pilot told air traffic controllers the airplane was in a spin; then communications broke off. The so-far unidentified pilot and four passengers (two of elementary school age, according to ABC News) have yet to be recovered and are presumed to be contained in the main wreckage, which sank in water that is 60 to 90 feet deep.
