Plane down outside of Fort Worth registered in Hockley County

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The twin engine aircraft that crashed outside of Fort Worth Tuesday afternoon has West Texas ties. There were no reports of fatalities but three passengers and the pilot on board were taken to area hospitals with injuries.

FAA records show the Beechcraft King Air that crashed was registered in Hockley County to Robert Schumacher. Schumacher owns RJ Schumacher Oil and a company spokesperson says two other company employees were on board at the time of the crash.

NBC affiliate KXAS is reporting the plane was in flight from Oklahoma City to Fort Worth when the crash occurred. FAA spokesperson Lynn Lunsford said the plane was approaching the Fort Worth area when the pilot radioed air traffic controllers to report both engines had failed.

The plane disappeared from radar and went down near Rhome, TX about 22 miles northwest of Fort Worth. Video shows the plane's left wing is missing and had a crushed nose from impact. NTSB will investigate the crash to determine exactly what caused the plane to go down.
