10 People dead after plane crashes into hangar at Texas Airport

Dallas County Medical Examiner has confirmed 10 people dead as small twin-engine passenger plane crashed in Texas in the United States on Sunday.

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

Federal officials said two crew members and eight passengers were on board the plane, headed to St Petersburg in Florida, when it crashed at 9:11am.

Addison spokeswoman Mary Rosenbleeth confirmed there were no survivors on the plane. The hangar was not occupied at the time of the crash.

Edward Martelle, a spokesman for the town, said the plane crashed during takeoff and the resulting fire was quickly extinguished.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the Beechcraft BE-350 King Air was destroyed in the crash, about 20 miles (32km) north of Dallas, after it struck an unoccupied hangar.

Bruce Landsberg, vice chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board said, authorities have not released the identities of the victims, as their next of kin are being sought.

“We cannot confirm that there was engine failure at this point,” Landsberg said. “There are any number of possibilities that could occur and we’re not in a position to speculate on those kinds of things.”
