OKLAHOMA CITY – Two people were killed in a plane crash at a northwest side airport Monday afternoon.
Emergency crews were called to Sundance Airport, 13000 Sara Rd., shortly after 3:30 p.m. after a corporate jet crashed while landing at the airport, officials said.
Oklahoma City Fire Department officials said a man was pronounced dead at the scene. A woman, who was also onboard, was transported to the hospital in critical condition. She later died. The names of the victims have not been released.
“Obviously, this is a tremendously somber day at Sundance Airport. It is truly difficult to find the words to express the sadness that this group is feeling. Everybody here at Sundance is truly a family. They are a very very close community,” said Deborah Floyd, Sundance Airport spokesperson.
According to online flight records and the FAA, the aircraft took off from Northwest Beaches International Airport in Panama City, Florida shortly after 1:30 p.m. central time.
The FAA and NTSB investigators are investigating.
