Investigators seek cause of Iowa plane crash


DES MOINES (AP) -- Authorities have released the names of three Wisconsin men killed in a small plane crash in northwest Iowa.

The single-engine Piper 28 crashed near Sheldon in O'Brien County about 11 a.m. Tuesday.

The sheriff's office on Wednesday identified the men as 64-year-old Francis Allegretti, of Cambridge, Wis.; 60-year-old Thomas Boos, of Fort Atkinson, Wis.; and 65-year-old Malcolm McMillan, of Milton, Wis.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the plane was owned by Jerome Goodger, of Milton, Wis. A telephone message to Goodger on Wednesday was not immediately returned.

FAA records also list McMillan as a co-owner of the plane.

FAA spokesman Tony Molinaro says no flight plan was filed so the plane's destination was unclear.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
