A multi-engine Beechcraft B200 King Air airplane crashed before arriving at the runway of Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport in South Carolina (SC). Three people were injured including the pilot and two individuals employed by Stevens Aviation, according to The Virginian-Pilot.
The pilot was employed by MTDR Holdings LLC, a Virginia Beach company which the airplane is registered with.
We dont know how badly the three men were injured, but I hope they pull through. As a licensed pilot, Ive always worried about the risk of a bad landing turning into a bad accident. Its terrible to hear when this scenario comes to fruition.
We know the plane hit a guardrail while trying to land, but further details regarding the accident havent been released. Well have to wait and see what the Federal Aviation Administration has to say in their accident report.
This isnt the first time this model airplane was involved in an aviation accident. Back in September a B200 crashed at Hayward Airport in California.
