ANCHORAGE (AP) The bodies of the four people killed in a plane crash were recovered from Mount Hunter in Denali National Park and Preserve, officials with the National Park Service said Thursday.

The bodies were removed from the crash scene Wednesday night and taken by helicopter to Talkeetna.

Killed in the crash were the pilot, Keli Mahoney, 35, of Talkeetna.

Also killed were climbers Bruce Andrews, 39, of Lafayette, Colo., and Mark Wagoner, 31, of Snow Camp, N.C.

The other passenger was Carolyn Disselbrett of Salem, Oregon, who had gone along to view the scenery.

The McKinley Air Service Cessna 185 was found at the 8,200-foot level of the mountain on relatively flat terrain, officials said.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash.
