Four people are dead after a small plane that originally departed from Santa Rosa Municipal Airport crashed in Arizona this afternoon, according to preliminary reports from the Federal Aviation Administration. The twin-engine Beachcraft Bonanza had just departed for Texas after stopping for fuel at Holbrook Municipal Airport in Arizona when it burst into flames and crashed around 5 p.m., FAA spokesman Ian Gregor said. It crashed about a quarter-mile east of the Arizona airport, Gregor said. All four people on board died, according preliminary reports. He said the plane was registered to a Texas resident. He did not know when the plane originally departed from Santa Rosa.
