The body of a tenth pas­sen­ger was recov­ered on Sun­day. The air­craft crashed in Mutiny Bay off the west side of Whid­bey Island. At the time, weath­er con­di­tions near Mutiny Bay were scat­tered clouds, with a vis­i­bil­i­ty of 10 miles, accord­ing to the Nation­al Weath­er Service.
  • Accord­ing to the Wash­ing­ton State Depart­ment of Ecol­o­gy, dive crews have fin­ished cut­ting away free-float­ing net­ting from the sunken fish­ing ves­sel Aleut­ian Isle.
