10 killed as light aircraft crashes in Texas

TEXAS: At least 10 people were killed when a light aircraft crashed into an airport hangar in Texas.

A twin-engine Beechcraft BE-350 King Air plane crashed shortly after take-off at Addison Airport.

A fire department official said that the plane veered into the hangar before bursting into flames.

Darci Neuzil, the airport’s deputy director, said it took off around 0900 local time (1500 GMT), bound for Florida.

Emergency services were quickly on the scene, around 10 miles (17 km) north of Dallas, but there were no survivors.

Authorities have not released the identities of the victims, whose next of kin were being sought.

Video footage shows columns of thick black smoke billowing from the hangar. No-one was inside when the aircraft plunged through its roof.

CBS television while quoting unnamed sources reported that the plane suffered engine failure, but this has not been officially confirmed.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating.
