The 1969 Beech 95-B55 twin engine airplane had taken off from Louisville early Friday morning and was attempting to land at the Shannon Airport around 12:30 p.m. The plane touched down about halfway down the runway, before the pilot attempted to abort the landing for an unknown reason. The plane attempted to take off again, turning and climbing into the air, before crashing in a nearby stand of trees and catching on fire.
All six people on board the plane were tragically killed in the accident. The pilot of the plane has been identified as 64-year-old William C. Hamerstadt. Also on board were 73-year-old Robert D. Ross, 52-year-old Lisa K. Borinstein, 19-year-old Luke J. Borinstein, 15-year-old Emma R. Borinstein, and 15-year-old Maren Timmermann. The plane’s owner was reportedly Robert D. Ross. The cause of the tragic accident is still under investigation at this time.
