PAGE, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities have released the identity of a French tourist who died from injuries she suffered in a northern Arizona plane crash.

Page police Capt. Ray Varner says 79-year-old Jacquelina Vallois, of Le Havre, died Saturday. She was part of a group from France that chartered a Cessna 207 for a short sightseeing tour around Page.

Another passenger, Guy Vincent, was transported to Flagstaff Medical Center with back injuries. He was listed Tuesday in good condition.

The pilot and three other passengers were treated for minor injuries. A seventh person was unhurt.

Federal officials investigating the crash say the plane experienced a partial loss of power about 20 minutes into flight. The pilot was headed back toward the airport when the plane bounced short of the runway and landed upside down.
