Unread postby jjbaker » Wed Dec 31, 2014 6:06 am

A Cessna 404 Titan crashed in Centennial, CO early Tuesday killing the pilot. The wreckage stopped about 10 feet from a house in a suburban area about 4:30 a.m. The aircraft took off from Centennial Airport at 4:27 a.m., according to local media reports, and crashed five minutes later. The NTSB told a news conference the aircraft was operated by Key Lime Air and was going to Denver International on a repositioning flight. The pilot has been identified as Daniel Steitz, a retired police officer.

The NTSB said the aircraft crashed nose first in a steep bank and cartwheeled several times before stopping in the front yard of a house. Weather was clear but cold at the time with temperatures about 0 degrees. "It is with sincere sorrow that we have confirmed a Key Lime Air aircraft, a Cessna 404 has been involved in an accident," Cliff Honeycutt, president of Key Lime Air, said in a statement.
