GLENCOE, Minn., March 22 (UPI) -- A small airplane crashed into a field near Glencoe, Minn., Wednesday, killing all three people on board, authorities said.

A relative said those killed when the 1947 single-engine Beechcraft Bonanza crashed about 11 a.m. were the pilot, Stuart Dahlberg, 52, Brooklyn Center; his mother, Mae Dahlberg, 76, of St. Cloud; and his wife Ivelisse, age unavailable, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported.

The pilot's brother told the newspaper the three victims were flying to Colorado to watch a play at a high school where Stuart Dahlberg's sister is a choral and drama director.

The cause of the crash was under investigation.
