Why
Fox News showing a large "Cessna" that just crashed at HOU. Looks like it's on 12L. They showed an upside down aircraft completely burned. It's either a twin Cessna or a Citation. Or maybe it's not a Cessna in the first place.

Why
CNN is now saying this was a mid-air with a 737 (Southwest)? Supposedly the 737 was cleared for takeoff on an intersecting runway, while the Citation was told to delay (in position on the runway?) The Cessna took off and clipped the 737. 2 people dead in the Cessna. The 737 landed safely at IAH.

A little research is in order folks, you can look this stuff up too.
If you are going to do the work, why would I bother?

By the way, thanks for the link.

From the Houston Chronicle:

2 die in small-plane crash at Hobby Airport

By PAIGE HEWITT
Copyright 2005 Houston Chronicle

Two people died this morning around 10 a.m. when their twin engine plane, a Cessna Citation 500, crashed at Hobby Airport, officials said.

The plane had been waiting on the runway to take off from runway 22 at Hobby to Corpus Christi when an incoming Southwest 737 jet issued an alert because of engine trouble, according to Tommy Dowdy, district chief for the Houston Fire Department.

Air traffic controllers told the Cessna to take off quickly. Moments after take-off, however, the pilot of the business jet radioed the tower for permission to land immediately. The plane, however, plunged nose first, tumbled over and skidded nearly 300 feet on the runway, Dowdy said.

The Southwest flight was diverted to Bush Intercontinental Airport, where it landed safely.



Hobby resumed flights at 11 a.m.

Lets wait for the "real" report to come out...not news stories. In the article I posted above it says they were cleared for takeoff. In this link, http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/story?section=local&id=3606961, it says they were told to clear the runway but took off anyway. Nowhere have I seen ANY reports of a midair.

Jeez,

My Simuflite Instructor, was going down to Houston to do some contract work on a C650 on Friday.

AJI manages a couple of 650's down at HOU.

If in fact the N number IS 505K. That's a 500 series...even looks like it from the picture I saw on the news.

An ancient one too....#4 off the line.

Ya I got to agree with you, from that picture, that landing gear looks pretty straight, just like the 500 series.

Controllers have no respect for pilots. Every action they take is designed to cover their own arses. Stuff like- "maintain visual separation", or "exit at the next intersection". Homey don't play that sh1t anymore. With any luck, the controller who ordered the Citation to 'get out of the way' will be found to have contributed to this unfortunate accident. I've seen it som many times. Just say that you're "unable". And let him fix the problem. Over and out-

How many dumb cops does it take to look at a plane wreck?
Quick, somebody park in front of the terminal for more than 30 seconds!
