    Not a commercial carrier, from the sounds of it.

    That's terrible -- I am wondering if this was carrying some sort of team or something?

    This was my first thought. It's not common, but teams have been known to fly to games in that state.

    AP update has an FAA spokesman saying they believe the kids were on a ski trip.

    The plane was something called a Pilatus PC-12, which I've never heard of.

    Not much of a report. Where there any survivors?

    And I hate to ask, but would the crash be less tragic if it was 17 adults that died?

    Gotta agree with TP. Elderly, adults and children, it's all the same. It's a tragic story no matter how you turn it.

    Why? What if the adults were fathers and mothers of young children?

    Second what FJ said.

    This sounds like a spring break trip. Prayers for the families, community and others...
