An American Eagle commuter plane with 21 people aboard crashed in a wooded area near Raleigh-Durham International Airport Tuesday about 7 p.m. ET. The state Highway Patrol reported 10 people were killed. The temperature in the area was 37 degrees and it was raining and foggy when the plane -- Flight 3379 from Greensboro to Raleigh-Durham -- crashed. The plane was a Jetstream 31 model, not the controversial ATR grounded last week by the FAA in icing conditions. American Eagle flights have crashed at least four times in the last seven years. In the last incident, all 68 people aboard one plane died when it went down October 31 in northwest Indiana.
