King Air turboprop crashes into hangar after attempting to take off in Brazil

Beechcraft aircraft with registration number PS-JCO departed from Bom Futuro Airport, in Cuiabá, with three occupants. Pilot and person on the ground died

A Beechcraft King Air C90GTi had a serious accident on Wednesday while trying to take off from the city of Cuiaba, in the interior of Brazil.

The aircraft, with three occupants, left the ground but tilted towards the aircraft apron and hit the left wing on the ground. The turboprop slid until it hit a hangar under construction.

A security camera video at the airport captured the moment the King Air left the runway and crashed into the building.

The pilot and an employee working on the site died, while the passengers managed to leave the aircraft before a fire consumed it.

The aircraft was manufactured in 2008 and has the serial number LJ-1875, according to the Brazilian Aeronautical Registry.

The Brazilian Air Force (FAB), through the Regional Aviation Accident Investigation and Prevention Service (Seripa IV), will investigate the causes of the accident.
