Plane Crashes in South Bend

Monday, March 18, 2013
By George Hatcher

The pilot of a Montana Beechcraft Premier I Twin Jet en route from Tulsa Oklahoma attempted a landing about 4:15 p.m but aborted to make a go round.

The pilot failed to return to the airport.

Eight minutes later, the 7700 Enterprises-owned plane crashed near South Bend Regional Airport on March 17, 2013. The jet clipped a house, damaged the next, and impacted the final house where it came to rest.

Leaking fuel posed a danger so area electricity was cut off. Two fatalities were reported, including Wes Caves, the owner of the business that owns the plane.
