    A Beech 350 King air crashed in Addison Texas. All 10 on board perished. A 350 is a large turbo prop aircraft weighing over 12,000 pounds requiring two pilots and type ratings.

    Something went wrong and the aircraft hit a hangar and exploded.......

    Again reports stated the left engine failed the aircraft yawed left and crashed into a hangar exploding.

    King airs have systems that sense a change in power and when a engine fails, the propeller automatically feathers and the appropriate rudder in put is applied to keep the nose of the aircraft straight and aligned with the runway. The pilot only has to raise the gear and take off flaps.

    This accident should not have happened.

    Maybe the system failed. Maybe the aircraft was over weight and normal climb performance is based on standard temperature (59 degrees)

    Texas in June is hot! ....so this will be a factor.

    Ive flown the 90 and 200 model and they are good aircraft . The 200 had the auto feather system. We never needed it and it is protection in the event of an engine failure at the most critical point.

    I can tell you that a auto feather or NTS failure can really be a handful. Still have to identify, verify and throttle. I used to piss off the MU-2 sim instructor by caging the engine before he knew I did it. Fly the Apache long enough, you get good at muscle memory.

    Poor POI will be hung out to dry.

    My Aztec had an option called thrust detectors. It would indicate a loss of trust and a light would go off on the offending prop and throttle. Never had to use it....but it was nice to know it would aid in proper ID of an
    engine failure.

    Dead foot, Dead engine is taught world wide (i hope) in multi engine training.....!

    There is a big difference between FAR 91 and 135 crews. It seems the 91 guys never really practice. The insurance companies will step in as more and more big ticket 91 crashes occurs

    The latest is the Billionaire and why many of them have one pilot always amazes me. !

    If you're referring to the Cline helicopter incident in the Bahamas and his connections to the W.V. coal industry, I smell a rat in that one, someone with very deep tentacles if ya get my drift.

    yes, and once again being a former investigator I would never let anyone near the aircraft and always keep it hangared!.......

    There have been to many Billionaire Republicans knocked off lately or is it my imagination?
