Reports are they cannot identify the remains. They'll have to go to dental records.

I can't say I'm surprised. The few pictures I've seen show there isn't much of the aircraft left. Anyone that didn't get out was going to be left unidentifiable.

The pilot radioed a problem with #4, but witnesses on the ground said #3 had problems.

Yeah #3 was smoking in the air as well is what witnesses were saying.Having two on the same side out would have made it hard for the pilot to keep in the air.

According to the NTSB, while attempting to land, the aircraft impacted the ILS stanchions, crossed a grassy area and a taxiway, and impacted the deicing facility.

Officials release names.

On board were a retired police captain, two volunteer firefighters, and a member of the Air National Guard, who was able to open the aft hatch and extract passengers.

Per the NTSB preliminary report, the fuel was not contaminated. They were able to recover a sample from the aircraft, samples from the truck, and no other aircraft fueled around the same time reported any issues.

The right hand engines remained attached to the wing, with the blades staying attached to the engines. The #3 engine was recovered from the top of a deicing tank, with one blade showing near the feathered position, and two showing between low power and feathered. The #4 engine showed all three blades feathered.
