A Hawker Beechcraft King Air B200GT crashed into a small hotel July 28 while on a daylight approach in poor weather to Francisco Alvares de Assis Airport (SBJF) in southeast Brazil. All eight people aboard the aircraft died in the accident, but nobody on the ground was injured or killed. The aircraft was reportedly on its third approach attempt when it struck the ground approximately 1,300 feet short of Runway 3. Weather reports indicated a 100-foot ceiling with visibility of less than a mile in heavy fog.
