    A Beechcraft B200 Super King Air was destroyed in an accident near Akureyri Airport (AEY), Iceland. The medic and one of the pilots were killed. The other pilot received minor injuries.
    The air ambulance plane had transported a patient to Reykjavik, Iceland and was returning to Akureyri. Since a Fokker passenger plane was about to depart, the flight had to hold to the west of the airport.
    While in a left hand turn, the airplane lost height. The left wing touched the ground and the airplane broke up while impacting terrain at Hlíðarfjall Road, northwest of Akureyri Airport. A post-impact fire erupted.

    Seems fair, since they use runways to race cars.

    That's amazing because that plane looks like it was totally destroyed.

    What happened? He wasn't trying to make an emergency landing (he's WAY too fast and his gear and flaps are up). It looks like he was trying to buzz the drag strip and wasn't paying attention to his altitude.
