Sen. Ted Stevens killed in Alaska plane crash, ex-NASA boss Sean O’Keefe survived

Former Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska was killed in a plane crash late Monday night.

Former United States Senator Ted Stevens was killed in a plane crash in southwestern Alaska on Monday night. Five of the nine people on board the small plane headed to a remote fishing lodge were killed in the crash, Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell said.

Mr. Stevens, who had been the longest-serving Republican in the United States Senate while representing Alaska, was 86.

Sean O’Keefe, 54, a former NASA administrator who now is an executive with the European aerospace firm EADS, was also on the plane with his son, but they both survived, according to an official briefed on the crash who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing.
