Twenty-eight people were believed dead last night after a commuter plane crashed and burst into flames in a snowy field outside Detroit.

The twin-engine Embraer 120 turboprop, operated by the Cincinnati-based ComAir, was on its way to Detroit from Cincinnati. A snow storm was beginning at the time.

The National Transportation Safety Board said 28 people were believed to have been aboard, and all were feared dead. The pilot had given no indication of trouble, the Federal Aviation Administration said. AP - Monroe, Michigan
