On Tuesday, a Cessna 172 went down over North Texas, killing a pilot from China and seriously injuring two other passengers. And on Monday, another single-engine plane went down in Central Texas, Michael D. Butler, 33, his wife, Kelly, 34 and their two children. Butler’s brother David was also on board and killed in the crash.
