KTTV staffers killed in crash

Two employees of Fox owned-and-operated KTTV-TV Los Angeles were killed in
the crash of a chartered jet outside of Aspen, Colo., Thursday night.

The crash killed all 18 people aboard the plane as it attempted to land at
Aspen-Pitkin County Airport in snowy weather.

The two employees at KTTV have been identified as Mir Tukhi, an assignment
editor, and Marisa Witham, a researcher. A KTTV spokesman said neither were on
the flight for business purposes.

The plane was reportedly owned by a company headed by Andrew Vajna, a
Hollywood movie producer whose credits include Rambo and TotalRecall.
