BELLEVUE, Tenn. -- A flight that departed from Great Bend Municipal Airport at about 2:45 p.m. on Monday crashed in a field about 10 miles south of the airport it was flying to in Nashville. Four members of the same family were believed to be on board and there were no survivors. The identities of those presumed dead have not been released.
The Gulfstream 690C aircraft, which is registered to Mid-Kansas Agri Co in Pawnee Rock, Kan., went down minutes before 5 p.m.
A report from CNN indicates that the aircraft was approaching John C. Tune Airport in Nashville when an accident occurred. A spokesperson with the Nashville Police Department said that the pilot was preparing for a second approach when that accident happened.
The plane would go down in a field very close to a YMCA building in Bellevue, Tennessee. Despite the plane going down near the YMCA, there weren't any other injuries to report.
"Spoke with an eyewitness that said the plane did a hard right bank, and then went straight into the ground, missing all the buildings that are out here," District Fire Chief George Hickey with the Nashville Fire Department said. "That tells me the pilot did one hell of a job."
The FAA arrived to the scene of the crash on Monday, the NTSB is expected to arrive on Tuesday for further investigation. FOX 4 will continue to follow this story and provide updates as more details are confirmed.
