Defense contractor EADS North America says former NASA Administrator Sean O'Keefe was a passenger on a small plane that crashed last night in Alaska.
O'Keefe is the current CEO of the U.S.-based division of the European company. Former Alaska Republican Senator Ted Stevens is also believed to have been on board the plane.
The company says it has no further information about O'Keefe's status.
