The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is investigating whether there is any connection between a string of Aviation Accidents involving several Hawker Beechcraft Premiere aircrafts in the past three weeks.
According to Aviation International News, the first crash occurred on February 20, outside of Augusta, Georgia, and claimed five lives. Then, on March 4, another Hawker aircraft went down in southern France and claimed two lives.
The most recent accident though, happened this past Sunday afternoon in South Bend, Indiana. The plane was carrying a group of five people to the South Bend Regional Airport at around 4:00 p.m. when the pilot reported experiencing electrical problems to air traffic controllers. The pilot and his crew made several failed attempts at landing the plane before crashing a short distance away from the airfield.
The impact of the crash killed both the pilot and co-pilot of the plane and left the three passengers who were on board seriously injured.
Investigators have recovered the “black box” from the aircraft to be examined for clues as to what may have been contributing factors to the crash.
The Airplane Accident Injury Attorneys with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy applaud the efforts by the NTSB to ensure aircraft on today’s market are free from mechanical defects that could lead to failure while in the air. The firm is hopeful their investigation will be able to prevent any further accidents from occurring with this particular aircraft.
