IDA, Michigan: A commuter airplane carrying 29 passengers and crew crashed in rural southern Michigan Thursday about 18 miles from Detroit Metro Airport. Delta ComAir Flight 3272 crashed and burned in Monroe County in an open field in cold and snowy conditions. Authorities do not believe any aboard survived the crash. The National Transportation Safety Board is sending a team to investigate the incident. Eyewitnesses say the plane dipped while in flight, then began spiraling before hitting the ground at a very steep angle. The plane, a Embraer 120 model turboprop, appeared to be thoroughly destroyed. The flight originated in Cincinnati and was reportedly turned away from Detroit Metro, which was experiencing heavy snows, and trying to get to Toledo to land.
