ADS is closed. Apparently a King Air landed and reported landing gear problems. A mechanic was sent out ( don't know if to the ramp or runway) to look at the probelm. The gear collapsed and pined the mechanic under the plane.

Can't find anything on the news, anyone have info?
Just saw it on Texas Cable News. Apparently, the airplane did not have indication that the gear was locked and circled ADS for an hour to burn off fuel before landing. Upon arrival, a maintenance worker got under the airplane to inspect the problem when the gear collapsed, killing him. I think it is on the TXCN website by now.....www.txcn.com
