The flight that ended in a remote field just west of the tiny town of Mina South Dakota began like any other.

The twin engine Learjet carrying golfer Payne Stewart and five others left Orlando at 9:20 en route to Dallas.

At 35-thousand feet over Gainesville, Florida, the pilots received permission to climb.

Stewarts plane, similar to this one, is referred to by its call sign:
