Ten people are dead after a private plane crashed into a hangar at the Addison Airport in Addison, Texas, shortly after takeoff, according to Town of Addison spokesman Ed Martelle.Martelle says that the plane, a Beechcraft King Air 350, was leaving the airport and veered into the hangar before bursting into flames.







A small plane crash set a hangar at the Addison Airport on fire Sunday morning. Addison fire crews were still working to contain the fire about 11 a.m., after it was first reported at 9:11 a.m. The plane was a twin-engine Beechcraft BE-58 King Air that had just taken off when it crashed, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Lynn Lunsford said in an email. The aircraft was destroyed by the fire, Lunsford said.



Apparently it took off, but crashed back down onto a hangar. Does NTSB / FAA investigate ALL plane crashes in US?

Wonder what caused it, and who was aboard. Condolences, RIP.

Perhaps they came across a hot pocket of air and could not correct it.

This marks the second fatal King Air crash on takeoff in the last couple of weeks. Both with at least 10 people on board.

Man, that's a shame!

RIP the passengers and crew!

Engine failure or loss of control shortly after takeoff is a killer! Sounds like an inexperienced pilot (panicked). That, or a hot dog, and a stall.

Sorry for crew and passengers, hey the A/C pictured has fuselage mounted horizontal tail plane instead "T" tail is a miss-identification going on with A/C type.

There are actually two types of King Air airframes. The original Model 90 and 100 are the King Air. They have a conventional tail, with the stabilizers below the tail.

They later came out with the B250 and B350. These are actually Super King Air airframes. They have the t-tail configuration. Both are officially listed as King Airs though. Considering the usual thorough job done by the media when ir comes to aviation accidents, they probably grabbed the first King Air picture that popped up on Google.

Look at Fox link provided above and it also appears that this is a "high" winged A/C see the intact gear under engine nacelle.

More like a Twin Commander setup rather than King Air platform.

Engine failure on takeoff.

The 350 landing gear retracts into the nacelle. The mains are located directly under the engines.

OK never mind for tonight we'll soon find its 350 or not.

For the people who died maybe the inspectors laid off turned out to be essential government functions after all!

Thousands of airplane inspectors not working because of government shutdown, raising concerns

Contrary to the Norquist anarchy agenda, sometimes government enforcing consumer protections is a good thing!

"Lobbyist Grover Norquist is a well-known proponent of the strategy and has famously said, "My goal is to cut government in half in twenty-five years, to get it down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub."

No one mentioned the most obvious cause of loss of control on takeoff of a fully loaded aircraft. I would think a violation of weights and balance is the probable problem. 10 people with luggage is for 10 is quite a load. If the plane was loaded tail heavy, or luggage was unsecured and shifted to the rear on takeoff an unrecoverable stall is a given.

They reported engine failure as they got airborne.

The King Air is a fabulous, tried and proven, airplane.

Always sad to hear of one going down. Again, RIP to the PAX and crew.

The King Air has always been my most favorite aircraft of any aircraft past or present (with the possible exception of the B-17G). If I could have my cake and eat it too, I'd have a King Air 350 set up with the gravel/grass/wet package in a cargo/VIP configuration.
