Seven people are dead, including Lewis Katz, an owner of the Philadelphia Inquirer, after a plane crashed outside of Boston Saturday evening, according to the Dallas Morning News. What caused the crash and subsequent explosion of the private Gulfstream IV is still unknown, but an investigator with the National Transportation Safety Board reported that the plane never left the runway at Hanscom Field in Bedford. Katz had invited three friends aboard the plane while they were in Massachusetts for an education charity event; three crewmembers were also onboard and were also killed in the accident. Investigators are seeking to piece together what happened that evening, including searching for the cockpit recorder, data flight recorder, and video of the crash.
