(((NATS) LOCATOR: MINA, SOUTH DAKOTA Even in the dark, Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board toured the wreckage of a bizarre and ghost-like flight that ended in tragedy. A Learjet carrying professional golfer Payne Stewart and five others flew halfway across the country, its windows iced or fogged over its passengers--probably unconscious-- even as the plane nose dived out of the sky and into a grassy field in South Dakota.
(SOT: BOB FRANCIS/NTSB VICE CHAIRMAN)

Set apparently on autopilot, the Learjet -- which was flying from Orlando to Dallas-- was cruising at 45-thousand feet,
and radio controllers were unable to talk to the crew. So, officials sent fighters jets after it-- to see what had gone wrong as the plane continue to veer hundreds of miles of course.
(SOT: Capt. Chris Hamilton, 40th Flight Squad)

When I went up there and initially thought I could help this aircraft and help then recover safely. I was not going up there to unfortunately see an aircraft where nobody's conscious on board. Investigators believe the jet may have lost cabin pressure soon after taking off from Orlando. With its passengers unconscious or dead from lack of oxygen, the plane presumably flew until it ran out of fuel.
(NATS)

The accident killed two of the most recognizable names in golf. Payne Stewart was the reigning US Open Champion and was infamous for his attire on the golf course. Also killed, Bruce Borland one of the sports premier course designers. Stewart's family issued a statement asking for prayers.

((If you think missing a few hours of sleep will simply make you a little cranky, think again.
A study from the University of Chicago says people who don't get enough sleep can suffer changes in their metabolisms--changes very similar to those of aging.
And that can make a person more prone to diabetes, high blood pressure and memory loss--diseases more common with aging.
This is one of the first studies to show losing sleep on a regular basis can be physically harmful...not just mentally and its an especially important when you look at the fact the average person sleeps a little over 7 hours a night--at the turn of the century before TV-the average was 9 hours.
Also today, if you've got a young soccer player in the family--and they complain of heel pain--pay attention. Researchers at Temple University say heel pain from soccer cleats is on the rise--and untreated can cause permanent damage to a child's foot. Relief is simple--the study says a small one eighth to one quarter inch heel left often relieves the pain and prevents further problems.
Another disorder on the rise--migraine headaches--especially in young women.
Researchers tat the Mayo clinic say the number of people with migraines jumped 56 percent over a ten year period.
Most likely to blame: stress. More single parent families, working moms and also dieting.
The doctors at Mayo say its important to try to identify the causes of migraines. Maybe keep a diary--and then talk to your doctor about new treatments that can ease the misery. That's a look at the day's top medical stories. I'm DDH for CBS News.))

All of a sudden it started flopping and flip flapping , turning somersaults and then it came straight down. The plane which began its ill fated odyssey in Orlando, was en route to Dallas. When it began to veer off course and the pilots failed to respond to radio controllers, officials sent up fighter pilots to see what was wrong.

"When I went up there and I initially thought I could help this aircraft and help them recovery safely. I was not going up there unfortunately to see an aircraft where no body's conscious on board."

This would also explain why officials believe the plane was off course and on auto-pilot when it slammed into this field. The crash is a major blow to the world of professional golf.
