Fatal Crash of Beechcraft King Air (Addison, Texas)

The Haze Of Our Lives™ "X"

On June 30, 2019, about 0911 central daylight time, a Beech BE-300, N534FF, collided with a hangar and terrain after takeoff from Addison Airport (KADS), Addison, Texas. The airline transport pilot, the commercial co-pilot, and eight passengers sustained fatal injuries. A postimpact fire ensued and the airplane was destroyed. The airplane was registered to EE Operations LLC and operated under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and an instrument flight rules flight plan had been filed for the flight. The cross-country flight was originating at the time of the accident and was en route to Albert Whitted Airport (KSPG), St. Petersburg, Florida.

According to information provided by EE Operations and Flyte Aero (an aviation services provider), the flight crew, and passengers arrived at the airport to prepare for the personal flight about an hour and a half prior to the accident. The airplane fuel tanks were "topped off" and luggage was loaded in the aft baggage compartment of the airplane. According to FAA air traffic control data, the pilot contacted ground control stating he was ready to taxi and about 0905 was provided taxi instructions to runway 15. About 0910 the pilot was given departure instructions to turn left heading 050 and was cleared for takeoff from runway 15.

The takeoff and departure of the airplane was captured by radar and multiple security cameras and was observed by several witnesses located in various locations at the airport. One witness stated that as the airplane went down the runway, it seemed more quiet than normal and sounded like it did not have sufficient power to takeoff. After the airplane lifted off, witnesses observed the airplane drift to the left, and then roll to the left before colliding with the hangar. Several security cameras captured the drift to the left immediately after takeoff and then a roll to the left. One camera showed the airplane roll completely inverted before it collided with the hangar.

Witness marks and wreckage distribution were consistent with the airplane impacting the top of the hangar in a right wing low, nose down, and inverted attitude. The empennage, right engine, and both propeller assemblies separated from the airplane during the impact sequence and were located inside of the hangar. Fragmented pieces of both wings were located on top of the hangar, inside of the hangar, and immediately to the north of the hangar.

The main wreckage, which included the left engine and the fuselage, was located outside of the hangar, having come to rest adjacent to a brick wall. The main wreckage came to rest on its right side and was destroyed by the impact forces and post-impact fire.

The airplane was equipped with an L3 FA2100 cockpit voice recorder (CVR). The CVR recorded two hours of high-quality audio including the accident flight. A crew comment regarding a problem with the left engine occurred about eight seconds before the end of the recording. Three automated "bank angle" aural alerts began about three seconds before the end of the recording. A CVR group comprised of technical experts will convene at NTSB headquarters in Washington, DC, to review the entire accident recording, and produce a written transcript. Several avionics components and personal electronic devices were recovered from the wreckage. These components and devices were secured for further examination. Both engine assemblies were recovered from the wreckage and were secured for further examination.

This accident is still under active investigation by the NTSB. To the best of my knowledge, the first video shown here here has never been seen publicly.
