    Oh, dear! This doesn't look good for the people inside the plane or building. Praying for all.

    At least 2 dead per live stream, from inside the building. 4 injured and at least 5 unaccounted for. Injuries are serious.

    Yes. It seems like yesterday (instead of two months ago) I flew east out of Mid-Continent and left Kansas behind. But one never leaves home behind. Tears in my eyes here then.

    I can't link on this tablet, but the KC Star is reporting 5 missing and 5 taken to the hospital. Of that 5, one's critical, 3 are fair, and 1 still being assessed.

    The Beechcraft plane is bigger than I thought, if I've been looking at the right pictures. It carries at least 6 passengers, I'd think?

    It had just taken off I think, so would have been full of fuel. :(

    Wishing the best in Wichita. King Air is a beautiful craft with a good safety record. My sweetie has logged a couple million air miles in the corporate plane.
