    Vintage plane crashes in Swiss Alps, killing all 20 on board


    Determining why a vintage plane crashed in the Swiss Alps will be challenging since the 79-year-old aircraft did not have black boxes and was traveling in an area without frequent radar readings when it plunged into a mountain, killing all 20 of the people on board, investigators said Sunday.

    The Junkers Ju-52 plane, operated by Swiss company Ju-Air, plunged at a near-vertical angle before it hit the Piz Segnas mountain while carrying 17 passengers and three crew members.
