TommyDeuce: From Wiki, so take with a grain of salt but,

General characteristics
Crew: one
Capacity: seven passengers

8 dead, 3 got out.

/Math fail proves deadly

8 Is the seating capacity with the seats installed.  Nearly every jump plane has the cabin seats removed to make room for more passengers.  Weight is a factor however jump planes dont have to carry full fuel tanks so they generally have excess carrying capacity.
