10 dead in plane crash in Texas – NBC News

A small airplane crashed in Texas on Sunday, killing all 10 people on board, officials said.

The Beechcraft BE-350 King Air crashed into a hangar while it was taking off from the local airport, said Mary Rosenbleeth, a spokeswoman for the city of Addison, north of Dallas.

No one was inside the privately owned hangar at the time, but a jet and a helicopter were damaged, said Bruce Landsberg, an official with the National Transportation Safety Board.

The twin-engine Beechcraft was destroyed by a fire after the crash, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

Jennifer Rodi, an NTSB investigator, added that the plane had been damaged by “impact forces.”

Two of the 10 killed were crew members, and the others were passengers, Landsberg said, adding that the plane was traveling to St. Petersburg, Florida.

Rodi said the plane was recently owned by a charter company in Chicago.
