Maybe Bendalot, but look at a photo of a king air front on. Tell me with wheels down, what AoB would be have to be to touch the prop on one side - and not damage the wingtip - AND also then repeat on the other? Geometrically I don't think it is even possible (although I am not sure what diameter prop this has). My money is on a wheels up after a poor weather approach to minima realised at the last second and went around and the props hit. Only just touched though as the antenna is still ok.

Either way, poor bugger. Hope s/he's doing OK tonight. Do you still get a gig with QF these days once you've done a wheels up?
