Mile High Skydive King Air crash? Can't Post

Heard about this recently and did some search and no reports at all,FAA,NTSB and DZ.com? Just curious as to why,how,and what happened exactly?

You mean in 1997?

Here's the final NTSB report

http://dms.ntsb.gov/.../K11102012120000.pdf

(short summary: ferry flight, ran out of fuel).

The web site claims that information is now dynamically generated; if the link doesn't work searching for a twin-engine airplane crash 1995-2000 in Longmont, CO will do the trick.

If there's been a more recent crash I'm not aware of it.

Skydive Midwest had a King Air incident recently. Maybe they meant that?

Not sure, but there was reference (by RM1) of something in another thread along the same line.

another Colorado dz crashed their king air 3 weeks ago and not one post or incident ever showed up

Original report listed tail number and indicated a gear collapse on landing. Could not find it again on the NTSB site. Might not be something the NTSB investigates.

That registration number is N76GM.
Current a/c are N66GS, and N500MS.
Was that a rental prior to Jeff buying his own?

I was not there, but I did hear that the pilot forgot to put down landing gear within the last month. Other than pilot, nobody was on board. I did not hear of any injuries.

I believe that this is the second, and new, KA that Frank bought that he doesn't fly all that often. I saw it when I was home earlier this year. It is supposed to rival Mike Mullin's KA, but Frank said he uses it more for his own personal use.

Was this the E90 (500MS)?
