The Texas Department of Public Safety says the pilot and all five passengers were killed. According to FAA spokesperson Lynn Lundsford, the plane crashed Monday morning while preparing to land at Kerrville Municipal Airport in Kerrville, Texas.

Six people died in a small plane crash Monday in central Texas during a landing attempt, officials said.

Wreckage from the plane was located approximately six miles from the airport.

The accident happened just before 9 a.m. CT on Monday when the plane, a twin-engine Beechcraft BE58, went down in a ravine near Kerrville, about 6 miles (9 kilometers) northwest of Kerrville Municipal Airport.
