Videos Show Final Moments of Downed Plane at Addison Airport

The NTSB's investigation into what caused the plane to go down could take weeks

Newly released videos show the final moments before a plane carrying 10 people crashed into a hangar in Addison, killing all on board.

Surveillance and dashboard cameras obtained by NBC 5 show the twin-engine Beechcraft BE-350 King Air rolling down the runway at Addison Municipal Airport. The plane lifts off and climbs to the tree line, where it veers left, flips upside down and crashes into a hangar.

Newly released videos show the final moments before a plane carrying 10 people crashed into a hangar in Addison, killing all on board.

The videos mirror witness reports that described the aircraft struggling to gain altitude before veering into the building.

Investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board said the crew commented on a problem with the left engine in the moments before the plane went down. The comments were captured on the cockpit voice recorder that was recovered from the debris.

Investigators have not yet determined what caused the plane to crash. It could take 18 months for the full report to be released, investigators say.

During a briefing Tuesday, officials said a cockpit voice recorder captured one of the crew members on board the Beechcraft Super King Air 350 making a comment about a problem with one of the plane's engines moments before it crashed into a hangar at Addison Airport Sunday.
The National Transportation Safety Board has issued a preliminary report on the June 30 plane crash at Addison Airport that killed all 10 people on board, but officials are still working to determine what caused the tragedy.

On board were pilots Howard Cassady and Matthew Palmer; passengers Brian and Ornella Ellard and their children, Alice Maritato and Dylan Maritato; Steve and Gina Thelen; and John and Mary Titus.

The aircraft was bound for St. Petersburg, Florida.
