Minnesota Plane Crash

A chartered Raytheon Hawker 800 crashed at a regional airport in Minnesota while trying to land in a thunderstorm killing everybody on board.

One of them survived the fatal landing but died while en route to the hospital.

The company that owned the plane said the crew was from Pennsylvania and they know who the pilots were, Clark Keefer and Dan D Ambrosio, but identities of the passengers are still not confirmed.

The flight started from New Jersey and crashed on the runway in MN where it was trying to land.

Unfortunate incident. Take it as an act of god, and I doubt if anything could be done differently to save human lives.

As a reader commented below, different dynamics like weather etc keep changing mid flight and its hard to predict whats going to happen next.

      crashes happen, thats the sad fact of life. even the best tools cannot save man from death.

    2. Kevin says:

      As a professional pilot with thousand of hrs in the very same type of plane, weather is a major part of flight planning. Weather changes constantly and will change and move from the time the fight left 2 hrs prior. We do everything in our power to keep flights safe.

    3. Keith says:

      Yeah, maybe aviators should consider weather reports before they depart on a flight.

    4. Keith says:

      wow tech banyan, that was real tricky changing my post like that! I’m sorry for the comment earlier but you should resist passing judgment with regard to some fellow professionals who just lost their lives and stick to what you know which at first glance seems to be a typical leftist view.

    5. Troy says:

      Keith, I don’t know what beef you have with me.

      I am no aviation expert and I proffered what I thought would be a logical point –

      if the crash took place because of a thunderstorm, why not gather information on the weather beforehand –

      but like Kevin mentioned, and I might add, in a civilized manner, weather keeps changing and its hard to keep track.

      You might know the ins and outs of aviation but don’t expect a layman (me) to know this.

      What do leftists or rightists have to do with this issue?

      And I apologize about editing the comment, my bad, but you ought to show some decency as well. Its not like I am disrespecting the dead.

      I have been quiet lenient about commenting on this site. Check the comments here for instance –

    6. Keith says:

      OK, and again I apologize for my tone. And as for the Leftist comment, I guess I was reacting to what little I read about some Obama book review or something. It’s just that plane crashes get such a huge amount of media coverage which is so often so distorted. The conclusive report won’t be out for a year or so and already the preliminary data suggests that “trying to land during a thunderstorm” was not what happened. So it seemed as though commenting that pilots should check the weather was a little inappropriate or was just about stirring up people like myself.

    8. Nice blog mate, hope you’re getting ready for the coming crash! The hammer is going to drop soon. The economy is going to sink before August 2013 (this is when the Federal Reserve’s 100 Year Charter expires). Spread the word and stay safe. Peace.

It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

      I believe that a property foreclosure can have a important effect on the debtor’s life. Real estate foreclosures can have a 7 to 10 years negative relation to a borrower’s credit report. A new borrower who’s applied for a mortgage or virtually any loans for example, knows that the actual worse credit rating can be, the more challenging it is to obtain a decent personal loan. In addition, it may affect the borrower’s capability to find a decent place to let or rent, if that gets to be the alternative houses solution. Thanks for your blog post.
