An air taxi has crashed in the US state of Alaska, killing all 10 people aboard, officials say.


The accident happened on Sunday at the Soldotna airport, south of Anchorage, as the plane took off.


The fixed-wing aircraft was engulfed in flames before firefighters could reach it, a local official was quoted as saying by the Associated Press.

The cause of the crash is being investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board.


The NTSB says the plane involved was a de Havilland Otter Air Taxi.
