Boeing Employees Among Dead in Crash

SEATTLE (AP) - Boeing Co. says two of its employees were among
nine people who died when a Turkish Airlines jetliner crashed into
a muddy field in the Netherlands.

The company said in a statement late Thursday that the U.S.
State Department also confirmed that a third Boeing employee is
among the injured.

Boeing previously said four of its employees were aboard the
Boeing 737-800 that was carrying 135 people when it crashed
Wednesday about two miles short of the runway at Amsterdam's
Schiphol Airport.

The statement says the status of the fourth employee has not
been officially confirmed.

Boeing has identified the four employees as Ronald A. Richey,
John Salman, Ricky E. Wilson and Michael T. Hemmer, all from the
Seattle area. The statement does not specify which were killed or
injured.
