A Mitsubishi MU-2 (N1VY, registered to Bankair) crashed August 1 at 7:51 a.m., about 10 min after taking off from Savannah (Ga.) International Airport on a 30-mi positioning flight to Hilton Head (S.C.) Island Airport. Witnesses reported seeing the aircraft in a right wing down, nose-low attitude as it hit trees and came to rest on a golf course of the Palmetto Dunes Plantation. A post-crash fire destroyed the airplane.
