A small plane en route from Salem, Oregon, to Springbank, Alberta crashed in British Columbia's interior, killing all three people on board, authorities said. A search and rescue official in Victoria said the pilot of the Piper Malibu radioed air traffic control Friday evening reporting engine failure at 21,000 feet (6,400 meters). Cpt. Arron Twa said radio contact was lost when the plane went below 13,000 feet (3,962 meters), but officials later picked up an emergency locator signal. He said the plane tried to make it to the town of Fairmont in southeast British Columbia, but crashed about six miles (10 kilometers) east of Invermere.
