    LOS ANGELES: A co-pilot was killed and two pilots injured when a private jet crashed and burst into flames on Sunday (Monday in Manila) at the airport that serves Aspen, the exclusive skiing resort, reports said. Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office confirmed the casualties after the plane smashed into the runway at Aspen-Pitkin County Airport in the state of Colorado. “Three on board: one fatality, one serious and one minor injuries,” Pitkin County Undersheriff Ron Ryan told Agence France-Presse in an email. The victim was identified as 54-year-old co-pilot Sergio Carranza Brabata of Mexico, according to media reports which said the two survivors were pilots. Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Allen Kenitzer said the plane was a Bombardier Challenger 600, a 22-seater aircraft traveling from Tucson in Arizona to Aspen. It crashed while attempting to land, Kenitzer confirmed to Agence France-Presse in an email.
