Ten people died in a small plane crash at Addison Airport

A light private aircraft twin-engine Beechcraft BE-350 King Air crashed Sunday morning shortly after take-off at Addison Airport into an airport hangar in Texas killing all 10 people on board.

The crashed plane started a fire. No-one was inside the hangar when the aircraft plunged through its roof. Emergency services were quickly on the scene but there were no survivors. The plane was said to have been bound for St. Petersburg, Florida. It suffered damage from the force of the impact and the fire. The plane recently changed owners and so the tail number information was not immediately available.  "I visited the scene and was briefed by incident command. Please pray for the families who lost loved ones in this tragedy. Team in process of notifying them," Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins tweeted.
