The cause of the crash was unclear, and an investigation has been opened, according to a defence ministry statement. A single-engine plane crashed shortly after takeoff on Monday evening after leaving the airport, the authorities said.

A 23-year-old Forestville woman has been identified as one of six victims in a fatal Monday night plane crash in Scottsdale.

The Piper PA-24 Comanche went down on the TPC Scottsdale Champions Golf Course.

Footage captured by witnesses shows black smoke billowing near the area and wreckage of the aircraft.

King got about 100 yards and began recording video of the fiery crash.

The identities of the deceased are being withheld until next-of-kin notifications are complete.

Scottsdale Airport and the golf course are across the street from each other near Hayden and Bell roads.

The NTSB will issue a preliminary report on circumstances of the crash within two weeks, spokesman Eric Weiss said from Washington.
