According Darci Neuzil, director of the airport, the Beechcraft BE-350 King Air plane was headed to Florida when it crashed into a hangar and caught on fire.
Nobody on the ground was hurt during the collision, Neuzil said. The circumstances of the crash remain unknown, but a US National Transportation Safety Board is now in charge of the investigation.
‘The Dallas County Medical Examiner has confirmed 10 fatalities and no survivors,’ a spokeswoman for the town of Addison, Texas told AFP.
Officials have not released the identities of the people who died, as authorities are still working to notify the victims' families.
