By: Paige Hubbard 

All six people on board a twin-engine plane died when it crashed on a private ranch near an airport in Kerrville, Texas on Monday (April 22), officials said.

The pilot of the Beechcraft BE58 was preparing to land at Kerrville Municipal Airport when the plane went down, said Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Lynn Lunsford.

The wreckage was found about 6 miles (10 km) northwest of the airport, which is about 100 miles (160 km) west of Austin, the state capital.

The National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the crash.

The flight had departed earlier on Monday from West Houston Airport in Texas.
