A private jet crashed while landing at the Aspen—Pitkin County Airport. The 1994 Canadair Challenger twin-engine business jet had flown from Toluca, Mex., to Tucson Sunday morning, sat at Tucson International Airport for over an hour before flying to Aspen at 10:04 a.m. The pilot and passenger (also a pilot) survived the crash. Sergio Emilio Carranza Brabat, Mexican co-pilot, died on the scene. The Sentinel reported that the survivor's names are being withheld by the National Transportation Safety Board.

The aircraft, registration number N115WF, had flown from Toluca, Mexico (near Mexico City), to Tucson earlier Sunday morning, according to flight plans. The jet spent just over an hour at Tucson International Airport, arriving at 8:47 a.m. and departing at 10:04 a.m., records show. The plane was to have landed in Aspen at 12:12 p.m.
