The private jet was on its second landing attempt when it crashed at the airport, going off the side of the runway only to flip over and burst into flames, sending black smoke into the cold air.Emergency crews responded immediately to the crash, the Sheriff’s Office said.

According to the transcripts from the cockpit voice recorder there was no mayday issued by the pilots although there was concern over wind gusts in the area per ABC News.

The plane, which according to the Sheriff’s Office had three people aboard, originating from Mexico, and stopped in Tuscon, Ariz., before arriving in Aspen.

Co-pilot Sergio Carranza Brabata, 54, of Mexico, was the one person who has been confirmed dead in the Aspen Airport plane crash, according to the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office.

The person in who sustained serious injuries was the pilot, whose identity has not been released. The passenger onboard suffered more moderate injuries and was also not identified, but was described as another pilot.

“The injuries were traumatic in nature, but they were not thermal,” Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office director of operations Alex Burchetta said. “So the fire never reached inside the cabin as far as we can tell.”

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Allan Kenitzer said there was not much information that can be confirmed this early on.

“The airplane appears to be a Bombardier Challenger 600, coming from Tucson to Aspen. It crashed while attempting to land,” Kenitzer said.

The airport has been closed indefinitely following the crash. We hope those confirmed dead in the Aspen Airport crash family’s find comfort and those injured recovered quickly.
