On the evening of April 30th, 2021, a light aircraft crashed in Yell County, Arkansas after departing the airport in Muskogee, Oklahoma. Yell County search-and-rescue officials were able to find the aircraft the following morning and confirmed that all four people aboard it had died in the aviation accident.
Officials were able to confirm that the plane left radar around 5:00 PM, which led to worries that it had crashed. However, officials have not yet confirmed the names of those who died in the crash. Family members still need to be notified about the incident before more information becomes public.
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is currently in the beginning phases of an investigation. It is not known at this time what could have caused the aviation accident or if the plane’s black box recorder has been recovered. Black boxes are used to record flight data and are often crucial pieces of evidence to determine the cause of an aircraft crash.
