Looks like a Hawker 800 was flying MGY to AKR at the time of the crash. It was operated by a Part 135 outfit based in FXE.

Officials from ExecuFlight, the company that leased the aircraft, tell us there were nine people aboard the plane, a pilot, copilot and seven passengers.

The FAA says a Hawker H25 twin-engine business jet left Dayton and was on approach to Akron Fulton International Airport just before 3 p.m.

Looks like it crashed about 3 miles out from the end of the runway, according to Google Maps. NY Times reports crash near the intersection of Mogadore and Skelton Roads.

Cant see any apartment complex there. Just a house. Still, very very sad! I hope no one was home at the time.

The aircraft flew from Cincinnati-Lunken KLUK to Dayton-Wright Brothers KMGY Tuesday AM. (Wright Brothers field was formerly known as Montgomery County airport, hence its KMGY id).

The accident flight departed KMGY about 1930Z. It did not operate through Wright-Patterson AFB; that report was local media confusion.

The crash site is 1.75 nautical miles prior to the Runway 25 threshold, basically on centerline.

MDA's for the non precision approaches into RWY25 area round 1500'-ish with an airport elevation of 1067'.
With an overcast of 600'-800' that is a non-precision approach to minimums in my book.
Statistically the highest chance of CFIT......

No VDA on the RNAV approach. That means 20:1 penetrations in the visual area. But, they never got that close.

An interesting report from ABC News:

A federal source told ABC News on Tuesday that the cause of the crash "appears to be mechanical."

Weather right on minimums.

- The METAR at 2:31pm was 1 1/2SM BR OVC005.
- And at 2:54pm, 1 1/2SM BR BKN004 OVC009.

- Minimums on the RNAV GPS are 461AGL (LP) / 501 (LNAV) amd 1 mile for Cat A/B or 1 3/8 for Cat C/D.
- For the localizer, it's 492AGL and 1 for A/B or 1 1/4 for C/D.

A surveillance video caught the final seconds of the flight.

Surveillance video shows moment plane crashed into Ohio apartment complex; 9 dead | Q13 FOX News

There's only about 3 seconds from when the aircraft comes into the frame to when it impacts the ground, but it appears to be descending rapidly. From the angle and the wing position, there's no doubt that it is in a steep bank.
