Flying club remembers 4 killed in Ohio plane crash

CLEVELAND (AP) — Members of a flying club held a candlelight vigil to remember four Ohio college students killed a week ago when a small plane crashed just after taking off near Cleveland.

Friends and family members were among the 80 people who gathered Sunday night near the crash site in Willoughby Hills.

Federal officials say the pilot of the plane reported he was having trouble climbing just after takeoff and was trying to return to the airport.

All four people aboard the plane were students at Case Western Reserve University.

A National Transportation Safety Board spokesman says a preliminary report crash in suburban Cleveland should be ready within 10 days.
