Plane crash in North Carolina

Today's news carries an awful story of a plane crash in Charlotte, North Carolina. All 19 passengers and crew appear to have died when the aircraft, a Beech 1900D, crashed into a hanger. As I write this, 2 airport workers are also unaccounted for, which may raise the death toll. The main news carriers have yet to mention that this accident comes less than a month after another accident, involving a similar aircraft, took place near Eagleton in Arkansas. The pilot and the two Raytheon employees aboard the aircraft were on a pre-purchase flight. There do seem to be many accidents with this aircraft type.

Update: 21 people died on the plane and everyone on the ground was accounted for.
