NTSB Factual Report

On September 25, 2018, about 0650 eastern daylight time, a Beech 200, N241CK, collided with trees and terrain while on an instrument approach to Oscoda-Wurtsmith Airport (OSC), Oscoda, Michigan. The airline transport certificated pilot was fatally injured. The airplane was destroyed by impact forces and a post-impact fire. The airplane was registered to and operated by Kalitta Equipment LLC, Ypsilanti, Michigan, under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a positioning flight. Instrument meteorological conditions existed near the accident site at the time of the accident, and the flight was operated on an instrument flight rules (IFR) flight plan. The flight originated from Willow Run Airport (YIP), Ypsilanti, Michigan, about 0600.

According to the operator, the airplane was en route to OSC to pick up passengers and take them to Memphis, Tennessee. The pilot was cleared for the area navigation (RNAV) global positioning system (GPS) runway 6 approach. When the airplane failed to arrive at the airport as scheduled, Kalitta officials notified the Federal Aviation Administration. Iosco County 9-1-1 central dispatch sent police and fire crews to search for the airplane. U.S. Air Force surveillance officers were able to narrow the location of the plane for rescuers. Ground crews located the wreckage in a wooded area of Wilber Township around 1030.

The on-scene examination of the accident site revealed the airplane clipped tree tops prior to ground impact. There was fire after impact that consumed the entire airplane. There were numerous chop marks in the trees. Examination of various actuators indicated the landing gear was down and approach flaps had been set.
