A single-engine Piper airplane crashed into Round Valley High School in Eagar, Arizona this past Friday.

The plane was registered to a Jeffrey Ulrich of Wesley Chapel, Florida and the remains of four people found on the scene have been confirmed to be Ulrich and his family.

Witnesses say the plane seemed to be having difficulties as it circled around the school building for a few minutes before crashing into the school.  Officials say that Ulrich and his family left Springerville's airport on Friday to go to the Grand Canyon, and soon after the plane hit a light post possibly causing the accident.  Fortunately, the school building was vacant and there were no ground injuries.  

Federal Investigators continue to gather the pieces of the aircraft in a facility in Phoenix in order to investigate exactly what caused this tragic plane accident.

Our greatest sympathies go out to the family and friends of the Ulrich family.
