On November 10, 2013, a Intermountain Powersports Inc Mitsubishi MU-2B-25 took off from Salina Kansas. The pilot was over the woods in Oklahoma when he contacted ATC about engine trouble just before he crashed in a field five miles north of Tulsa International Airport. The incident which occurred around 3:45 p.m. may have been the pilot’s first training flight on his recently purchased plane, though there appears to have been some training in Kansas. The plane lost an engine en route.

The pilot died in the crash on approach to the airport. He was Perry Inhofe, an orthopedic surgeon and the son of Senator James Inhofe.

National Transportation Safety Board investigators are investigating with FAA, Mitsubishi and Honeywell.
