It looks like the pilot was the owner, pax were his son, wife and friends.

Very sad

Although it has to be taken with the usual grain of salt there are multiple eye witness reports of engine fire. They also mention that the FDR have been recovered. Is there such a thing in a PC-12 ?

If FR24 is to be believed then the a/c was at around 5,000ft when passing back over the threshold for RWY36, then plummeted to the ground in around 1000m.

Would that not suggest more than just engine failure/fire, as I would imagine the PC-12 has a fairly decent glide ratio and it appeared to be VFR at the time of the incident.
