All 6 people aboard small plane killed in Texas crash

All six people aboard a small plane were killed when it crashed early Monday in Texas, officials said, AzVision.az reported citing New York Post.

The twin-engine Beechcraft BE58 crashed while preparing to land at Kerrville Municipal Airport in Kerrville, northwest of San Antonio, FAA officials said in a statement.

The wreckage was located about six miles northwest of the airport after departing West Houston Airport earlier Monday.

Texas Department of Public Safety Sgt. Orlando Moreno said all six people aboard were killed.

“FAA investigators are on their way to the accident site, and the National Transportation Safety Board has been notified,” FAA spokesman Lynn Lunsford said in an email to The Post. “The NTSB will be in charge of the investigation.”

A message seeking comment from sheriff’s deputies in Kerr County was not immediately returned.
