Celebrity witnesses LeAnn Rimes and Kevin Nealon took to Twitter after witnessing the plane crash at the Aspen airport:
So sad! Horrible plane crash we just saw happen at the Aspen airport.
Horrible plane crash here at Aspen airport. Exploded into flames as it was landing. I think it was a private jet.
Fire truck and ambulances were on the scene within minutes. I don't believe there are any survivors.
Airport is closed now. I think I'll drive back to LA after seeing that.
Fire trucks and other emergency vehicles still at scene. No word on survivors or who was on jet but I can't imagine there are survivors.
There is no one here that is not on their cell phone!
Didn't look like there could be survivors but just hearing some survived but critical.
Cross winds being cited as reason for crash
Prays out to the families. Just a completely charred figure of once was a challenger aircraft
