Arizona plane crash: Six killed, plane went down quickly after take off, bursting into flames

Six people were killed when a small plane crashed at a golf course in Arizona on Monday night.

Scottsdale Police Department Public Information Officer Kevin Watts spoke to the press, explaining how officers responded to the TPC Scottsdale Champions Golf Course after receiving numerous reports of a downed aircraft around 8:45 p.m.

Police said the plane crashed shortly after takeoff from Scottsdale Airport, located just south of the golf course.

None of the six occupants on board survived the crash. Watts noted that no one on the ground was injured.

“At this point in the investigation we can confirm that the flight originated from the Scottsdale airport and crashed shortly after takeoff…None of the six passengers aboard the aircraft survived.”

They have not yet named the deceased, pending identification and notification of family.

The National Transportation Safety Board will be the investigating agency, according to police. It was also not immediately clear what caused the plane, which burst into flames on the ground, to go down so quickly after takeoff.

Today, we’re going to be basically gathering perishable evidence and on-scene data; factual data gathering,” said Eliott Simpson with the NTSB. We’re going to be taking it to a remote storage facility and looking at it in a slightly more forensic environment.”

Arizona governor Doug Ducey tweeted his condolences early Tuesday.

“Praying for those lost in the plane crash at TPC golf course,” he wrote. “Our hearts are with their families and loved ones this morning.”
