A plane crash in Aspen on Jan. 5 killed one person and injured two others. The private aircraft was said to be headed for Aspen/Pitkin County Airport about 100 miles southeast of Denver when the pilot missed the runway upon his first attempt at landing, according to Flight Aware via Web Pro News.

The source saids that those on hand witnessed the plane circle the immediate area from the air more than once before crashing and then bursting into flames. ABC News says that the craft flipped over in the process, emitting black smoke.

The defeated plane was carrying three people, one person of which was killed due to the tragic incident. The other two were taken to Aspen Valley Hospital. All involved were pilots with 54-year-old co-pilot Sergio Carranza Brabata losing his life in this crash.

FAA spokesperson Allan Kenitzer said that the aircraft involved looks to be "a Bombardier Challenger 600." He said the private plane was coming from Tucson on its way to Aspen.

As news of this crash is still unfolding, there are few details but some reports say that both Kevin Nealon the comedian and LeAnn Rimes the singer witnessed the event.

And so, as a plane crash in Aspen kills one and insures two after the aircraft bursts into flames upon landing, more information will come available as the investigation into this sad event takes place.
