A Learjet 35A operating as a medical evacuation flight crashed November 19 shortly after it took off from Runway 9R at Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport. All four people aboard were killed. About a minute after departure, the crew told ATC they needed to return to the airport and shortly thereafter transmitted a “Mayday” call. The aircraft hit the water about three miles northeast of the Florida airport.
