King Air Crash in Texas Claims 10

The NTSB is investigating the June 31 tragedy, which killed eight passengers and two crewmembers.

The National Transportation Safety Board is now on site investigating the June 30 fatal crash of a Beechcraft King Air 350 at Dallas-Addison Airport in Texas. The 2017 turboprop twin went down on takeoff at 9:11 a.m. Central time from Runway 15 and struck a privately owned hangar, destroying the aircraft and killing all eight passengers and two crewmembers on board.  

While the accident airplane's FAA registration number was initially identified as N511EF by the NTSB, the Flight Safety Foundation’s Aviation Safety Network, citing ATC recordings, and an FAA preliminary report identify the King Air as N534FF. However, all three sources agree that the turboprop twin was owned by Addison-based EE Operations LLC. Aircraft tracking site FlightAware lists N534FF as having been scheduled for a flight from Addison to Florida's St. Petersburg-Albert Whitted Airport.
