Federal investigators are documenting the burned scene of a plane crash in Missouri that killed four Lubbockites.
Monday, the pilot, 71-year-old dentist Dr. Paul Johnson radioed to say he was returning to the airport. Just minutes later, the twin-engine piper Seneca two crashed into a storage unit in Branson. Investigators do not know what caused the crash. They say skies were overcast but there were no storms or unusual weather at the time.
The crash killed Dr. Paul Johnson, his wife Marcia and their friends Bill and Betty Roach. Dr. Johnson practiced dentistry in Lubbock for more than 40-years. He was also an accomplished athlete who competed in the 1956 Olympic trials. His family says he was an experienced pilot who loved to fly.
Bill Roach and his wife Betty were also killed. Bill was a retired LISD principal. He served at Bowie Elementary from 1962-1985.
