The twin-engined Beechcraft BE-350 King Air apparently lost an engine on takeoff, causing it to veer sideways and crash into a hangar at the Addison Municipal Airport, about 20 miles north of Dallas. Both crew members and all eight passengers perished in the fiery accident Sunday morning. Another airplane and a helicopter inside the hangar were damaged when the plane, headed for St. Petersburg, Florida, hit the structure.
How did this happen? Officials haven’t said, but the National Transportation Safety Board and Federal Aviation Administration are investigating.
