The NTSB continues its investigation into the April 14 crash of a 1985 King Air 300 while being vectored in VMC to Spruce Creek Airport, a private residential airport community south of Daytona Beach, Fla. One of two occupants suffered serious injuries and the turboprop twin was destroyed when it crash landed in a field. The pilot had reported the airport in sight, but about 90 seconds later declared an emergency and requested ATC assistance to find the runway. Direction and distance were provided and the pilot reported the runway in sight just before the accident.
