A twin-engine plane crashed into a building in Wichita, Kansas, this morning, shortly after it took off.
Here’s a little of what I know about the situation.
- The plane was N52SZ, a King Air 200, which is registered to the Beechcraft Corporation. Wichita is the home of several manufacturers of general aviation aircraft.
- The plane was flying to Mena, Arkansas, where the company also has a plant.
- Shortly after takeoff, the pilot declared an emergency, saying he’d lost an engine. But there was no further communication.
