The bodies of four people were recovered Sunday from a small plane that crashed in the Northern Alps near Kurobe Dam the previous day in the town of Tateyama, Toyama Prefecture, authorities said.

The four were apparently on a training flight from Toyama Airport to Matsumoto Airport in neighboring Nagano Prefecture when their single-engine Cessna 172P went down in heavy fog at around 3 p.m. The transport ministry said the plane left at 2:23 p.m. and was scheduled to arrive in Matsumoto about an hour later.
