Akron Ohio Plane Crash

I don't know if anyone on here has followed the story of the Execuflight Hawker 25 crash near Akron, Ohio yesterday, but it was near where I live in Ohio and just seems like an unusual situation as no one knows yet what exactly happened. I know there are some pilots here on the forum that may be able to interject..the plane was on approach to Akron Canton airport in Akron, Ohio when it started to head towards the ground about a couple miles from the runway. Witnesses heard a jet engine revving up and then the sound of the impact as the jet hit an apartment building. There were 9 people on board including the pilot and co-pilot, no one survived. The NTSB and FAA are still investigating and I suspect the cause may be determined if the black boxes can be recovered.

Here is the flightaware page for the flight.

The coordinates of the crash site are 41 degrees 3 minutes and 17.41 seconds north, and 81 degrees 25 minutes and 23.64 seconds west.

As a pilot, I think he got a little too low on approach. This happens more than one might think, and sometimes there is no time for the engines to rev up and avoid hitting something. Turbine engines do not have instant power like the old recips did, and this makes mistakes fatal sometimes..

The flight was approaching Akron-Fulton KAKR, not Akron-Canton KCAK. Sounds similar to the Thurman Munson crash in 79 at KCAK. The story around the flight school at KCAK was that Munson had very little time in a jet powered aircraft and didn't appreciate the lag between applying power and getting airspeed. In the Execuflight crash you have to wonder what the flight deck workload was like and if there was a loss of focus on glide path.
