DALLAS (AP) - The Latest on a Texas plane crash that killed all six people on board (all times local):

5:10 p.m.

One of the two owners of a small plane involved in a deadly crash in central Texas says he can't confirm who was on the flight.

Charles Morina tells The Associated Press that the twin-engine plane that went down near Kerrville on Monday was well maintained. The Dallas resident says he also doesn't know what caused the crash that killed all six people on board.

Morina says he and a friend owned the plane. He says they regularly volunteered to fly sick people in remote parts of the country to hospitals in Houston and Dallas.

Investigators haven't released the names of those killed. The AP could not immediately reach the other owner of the plane.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the plane crashed just before 9 a.m. as it was preparing to land at Kerrville Municipal Airport, about 70 miles (110 kilometers) northwest of San Antonio.

The Texas Department of Public Safety says the pilot and all five passengers were killed.

12:20 p.m.

Authorities say six people have died in a small plane crash in central Texas.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the twin-engine plane crashed just before 9 a.m. Monday as it was preparing to land at an airport in Kerrville, about 70 miles (110 kilometers) northwest of San Antonio.

Texas Department of Public Safety Sgt. Orlando Moreno says all six people aboard the plane were killed and that federal investigators are headed to the crash site.

An FAA spokesman says the Beechcraft plane took off from an airport outside Houston earlier Monday and crashed about 6 mile (10 kilometers) northwest of Kerrville Municipal Airport.
