Plane Crash Update

Date:  Oct. 30, 2014 – 4:49 pm

City of Wichita officials have confirmed three of the victims from this morning’s plane crash are from the Wichita area and one is from another country. Three were found inside a flight simulator and one was found on the roof. The names and ages of the victims have not been released. Investigators are still working to notify the family members of the victims.

The victims have not been removed due to structural concerns with the building.  Earlier today, a structural engineer arrived at the scene to help assess the structural integrity of the building and to provide guidance to emergency responders. Additional equipment will arrive by Friday to help remove portions of the building. The cause of the crash is still unknown.

Police and Fire crews will remain at the scene to monitor building conditions throughout the night.

Anyone who witnessed the crash, or has footage of the crash should call 316-946-4700 or 316-946-4740.  Family members trying to locate family members are to call 316-220-3100.

Public safety officials have confirmed four people are dead after a Beechcraft King Air 200 crashed into the top of the Flight Safety International Cessna Learning Center North building at Wichita Mid-Continent Airport  just before 10 am on Thursday, Oct.30.  Five people have been treated at local hospitals.
