  1. initial reports, 'all 4 people on the plane were checked for minor injuries. The specific status conditions of those injured were not immediately released.'

  2. Kinda a no brainer looking at the pic of where this happened...

  3. Density altitude 4,000, four occupants, reportedly fully or nearly fully fueled, runway used is 4,400 feet usable length.

  4. Welcome to Chandler Municipal Airport please never mind the burning aircraft at the front entrance with the four bodies inside, it will be taken care of shortly.
