LE CASTELLET, France (AP) - A French official says a private
plane has caught fire and crashed on landing at Le Castellet
airport in southern France, killing the three Americans on board.

Paul Mourier, prefect of the Var region where Le Castellet is
located, said two men, aged 60 and 24, and a 30-year-old woman died in the Friday afternoon crash of the Gulfstream F4 from Nice. The
victims, all burned, weren't identified.

Some 60 firefighters doused the flaming aircraft, which lost a
wing on its landing approach. Five divers searched a nearby swamp
to ensure there were no other victims.

An investigation into the cause of the crash on a windless day
has been opened.
