The NTSB is investigating the June 12 fatal crash of King Air A90 N7043G. Pilot Steve Huisman, 41, was killed, and copilot Sean Launder, 25, was seriously injured in the accident. At press time the Safety Board had not published a preliminary report, but according to the preliminary FAA report, the turboprop twin crashed after the pilots reported a fuel problem and diverted to Tampa, Fla., on their way back to Sarasota. Tampa visibility was reported as one-and-three-quarter miles in rain and mist.
