SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- (KNXV) -- Court documents show that the two teenage sisters killed in a small plane crash this week should not have been on the flight in the first place.
Victoria and Skyler Falbe were flying to Telluride, Colorado, with their stepmother and dad, Eric Falbe. Falbe was at the controls of a Cessna 210 as it departed from Scottsdale around 9:30 Monday morning. The plane later slammed into the Mogollon Rim around 7,000 feet just north of Payson, killing all four people.
Divorce records show the girls' biological mother tried to keep them out of the plane altogether.
