Three bodies were recovered Wednesday afternoon at the site of a twin-engine, private plane crash in western Arkansas.

The Raytheon-owned Beechcraft 1900-C left Wichita on Monday. It disappeared from radar in just north of Mena, Arkansas.

Search teams spotted the wreck from the air on Tuesday. Authorities say rough terrain and foggy weather delayed their attempts to reach the crash site.

The passenger has been identified as Hageland Aviation Services president Ron Tweto of Anchorage, Alaska. A Raytheon spokesman says the two crewmembers were John McFarlane of Wichita and James Hennings of San Antonio, Texas.

The three were taking a pre-purchase flight.
