Seating capacity of 9 plus 2 crew in "airliner" config. according to a couple of charter websites. 2400 pound payload capacity.

Not good.

hah!
There is skiing in Missouri?

Title should be MT... Montana. Crashed near Butte.

I'll hold of on the speculation about W&B. Initial news reports usually get things wrong. I don't think 17 people would ever get onto a plane with 11 seatbelts. Even kids.

Also, what is this thread doing in the Majors section?

To the passengers on board rest in peace. If there was 17 on board I hope the families and FAA go after the owners/operators/insurance company for pure stupidity. Very sad indeed.

As the reports vary and are inconsistent, then you have no good information. Refrain from speculating regarding what isn't given. A mishap has occured, people are dead, and nothing further is known.

Save the lawsuits and the speculation. Presently there's no basis, and the bodies have scarcely cooled.
