Pieces of an air taxi that crashed in Alaska, killing 10, have been sent to Washington D.C. and Phoenix.
The Anchorage Daily News says the plane parts will be analyzed as National Transportation Safety Board investigators try to determine the cause of the July 7 crash in Soldotna, about 75 miles southwest of Anchorage.
The de Havilland DHC 3 Otter operated by Rediske Air had just taken off when it crashed.
Killed were all on board, including the pilot Walter "Willie" Rediske.
The passengers were two South Carolina families. They were Melet and Kimberly Antonakos and their three children -- 16-year-old Olivia, 14-year-old Mills and 11-year-old Anastacia -- and Chris and Stacey and their two children, 17-year-old Meghan and 15-year-old Connor.
Both families lived in Greenville, S. C.
