9 killed in Alaska plane crash


A sightseeing plane carrying a pilot and eight cruise ship passengers crashed into a cliff in southeast Alaska, killing everyone on board.                     
"There are no survivors," said Promech Air, the plane's operator.
Because of poor weather conditions, the body recovery process won't take place until Friday, the Alaska State Troopers said.
The DeHavilland DHC-3T Otter, a floatplane, crashed in steep, mountainous terrain about 25 miles northeast of Ketchikan.
Authorities haven't determined why it went down
The eight passengers were from the MS Westerdamwhich left Seattle on Saturday for a seven-day round-trip cruise.
The plane had taken off on a tour of the 2-million-acre Misty Fjords National Monument, accessible only by floatplanes or boats.
