On December 7, a Beechcraft BE58 Baron crashed at the Henry E. Rohlsen Airport (TISX), Christiansted, St. Croix, United States Virgin Islands. The Part 91-operated aircraft took off at 2100 local time in VMC conditions for a short flight north to Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas. Not long after takeoff, the pilot reported to ATC that neither engine seemed to be running correctly and that he planned to return to the airport. The Baron was attempting to land on Runway 10 when it crashed approximately 380 feet short of the runway threshold. Reports indicate the landing gear was retracted at the time of impact. Five people perished in the accident.
