Beechcraft crash in India kills all 10 aboard
A small Indian Border Security Force plane crashed shortly after takeoff in the Indian capital on Tuesday, killing all 10 people aboard. A spokesman for the border force said an investigation into the cause of the crash was under way. The plane, a Beechcraft Super King Air B-200, went down in southwest Delhi at about 10 a.m. local time, the BSF said.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in a statement he was “pained by the loss of lives” in the plane crash. “My thoughts are with the families of the deceased,” he said. This isn’t the first time Beechcraft Super King aircraft of the BSF has crashed. More than two decades ago, a plane with only the pilot on board crashed near the international airport in Delhi.
