Send us a news tip | RSS feeds | ABC13 E-lert | Info mentioned on airThe accident happened just before 10am Saturday. There was apparently a 737 coming in for a landing some type of difficulty. Air traffic controllers told the pilot of the smaller plane to move off the runway to make way for the 737. The pilot took off in the jet, circled back around, tried to land again and crashed.
The Citation aircraft skidded a distance through a grassy area and ended up on runway #22 where it caught fire. Both people on board are dead, according to HFD officials.
The 737 was diverted to Bush Intercontinental Airport where it landed safely. There's no word yet on what type of problems that plane was experiencing.
Hobby Airport was closed for about an hour following the crash. Stay with ABC13 Eyewitness News for the latest on this developing story.

Yes, you are missing out on FAR 91.23239, which calls for sympathetic detonation of all turbine aircraft on a particular frequency, when one turbine aircraft declares an emergency on an odd numbered day of any month beginning or ending in a vowel. It's the law.
