Twin engine plane into hangar in Addison, Texas, at least 10 dead


https://www.cbsnews.com/news/addison...ay-2019-06-30/

A small passenger plane crashed into an unoccupied hanger in Addison, Texas on Sunday morning. CBS Dallas reports that at least 10 people have died from the crash. It's unclear how many people in total were aboard the aircraft.

Sad news, but you would think that CBS would know the difference between a hanger and a hangar!

Just by reading the initial witness reports in that article, it sounds like it could be similar to the King Air crash in Australia King Air down at Essendon?

    N534FF is a previous identity for the aircraft in question, which was re-registered N511EF in April though some of the flight-trackers don't seem to have caught up yet.

    I think this is the first fatal accident of a King Air 350.
    They are truly fine aeroplanes so it will be interesting to see what happened.

    First in the USA.

    There have been fatal B350 accidents in Germany (2006), Brazil (2009) and Chile (2012).

    The folks flying the plane hadn't caught up either in the LiveATC link above. "Tower, 534 Fox Fox ready to go runway 15."

    Video of the Sunday night NTSB media update, the uncertainty on the tail number is mentioned since the aircraft "recently changed hands".

    I'd be surprised if that F900 ever flies again.

    Three pictures released today by the NTSB (but the picture with a view inside the hangar is not the one displayed at the briefing).

    How about the one at Wichita, crashed into the simulator building?

    King Air vs PC-12

    People I worked for purchased a King Air 200 3 years back and love it. They were adamant on a twin for safety when I suggested a PC-12. I did not get into the whole single versus twin things with them. They own the company and have managed quite well without my advice.
    Assuming we are dealing with an engine failure here a single would have been "safer". Half the chance of having the failure in the first place. If you do have one at takeoff, a much better chance of a controlled return to earth. Land straight ahead and fly the plane and you very likely walk away.
    The Wichita crash mentioned above, if it is the one I read about, involved a highly regarded instructor. I think that plane was just out of maintenance. Clearly EFATO is a very demanding and dangerous situation.
    Sad day for all involved. I enjoy flying private but it is not without its risks.

    Erm - half the chance of engine failure - but twice the chance of losing it all when it happens.
    I know what you mean - VMCA handling problems need regular training.
