American chartered Gulfstream III twin-engine jet, crashed into a hillside during its approach to the resort town of Aspen, CO, killing 15 passengers and 3 crew members. There was light snow and mist at Sardy Field Airport, a difficult landing field at best, set in the midst of 3,500 ft. high mountain peaks. The airport itself has an elevation of 7,815 ft. The plane had originated from Burbank, stopping at Los Angeles and continuing on to Aspen. There was no distress call as the plane hit a hillside about 20 ft high during its descent then slammed into another bluff about 500 feet from the runway.

UniCapital Corporation, the company which leased the Gulfstreams, was formed on 10/09/1997 at 9:00 a.m., Dover, DE.

This specific plane, #N303GA was originally registered on 4/10/1990, Dallas, TX. " It had crashed once before in January 1988, after which the wing was replaced and the plane was put back into service.
