The plane crashed 2 miles from Rick Husband Amarillo International Airport.

Authorities say there was heavy fog in the area at the time of the crash.

Dr. Robin Capt was Assistant Professor of Education at West Texas A&M, Dr. William Capt practiced medicine in Canyon and Dimmitt, and their son, William, was a junior Pre-Med major at West Texas A&M.
