The Corporate Airlines Jetstream 31 that crashed a mile short of the runway while on a night, reduced-visibility localizer approach to Kirksville Regional Airport, Mo., on October 19 evidently stalled. According to the CVR transcript, as the aircraft reached the MDA, the pilot reported approach lights in sight, then said, “Getting a little slow.” A mechanical voice warned, “Sink rate.” The pilot said “No,” the copilot said “Trees” and the stall warning could be heard a second before the sound of impact. Both pilots and 11 of the 13 passengers were killed.
