This year’s Thanksgiving holiday weekend turned tragic on Saturday, November 30, when a Pilatus PC-12–N56KJ–carrying 12 people crashed into a cornfield shortly after takeoff from Chamberlin Municipal Airport (9V9), approximately 50 miles southeast of Pierre, South Dakota. The aircraft was destined for Idaho Falls, Idaho. All aboard were members of the same Idaho family. Nine people died in the accident, including two young children, while three men, ages 17, 27 and 28, survived and are currently reported in stable condition at a Sioux Falls hospital. The aircraft was destroyed in the accident.
