According to the news sources, 5 people were killed in a plane crash leaving no survivors near Arkansas airport.

They were on their way to aid after an explosion at a metal mill in Ohio, but a tiny aircraft carrying five environmental professionals crashed at Clinton National Airport in Arkansas, killing everyone on board.

On Wednesday, a twin-engine aircraft crashed somewhere between Little Rock’s airport and the 3M Little Rock factory, according to the Little Rock Police Department.

Officials from the FAA have verified that the jet was a BE20 with two engines that was headed to John Glenn Columbus International Airport in Ohio.

According to KARK’s reporting, the FAA confirmed there were five passengers on board the jet, but law enforcement officials at the site said they discovered no survivors.

All five people who were killed in the mishap operated for consultancy firm CTEH, which offers response services, including “environmental data collection, and management, GIS, safety, incident management, industrial hygiene, toxicology and human health consulting for the public and private sectors.”

“We are incredibly saddened to report the loss of our Little Rock colleagues,” said Dr Paul Nony, senior vice president of CTEH.

“We ask everyone to keep the families of those lost and the entire CTEH team in their thoughts and prayers.”

Workers were on their way to aid after a deadly explosion at a metal mill in Bedford, Ohio earlier this week.

A corporate representative told KARK that the group was headed to the Schumann and Company Metals Factory, where an employee had been slain the previous Monday.

Meteorologist Pat Walker of the Arkansas Storm Team reported winds of up to 46 mph were recorded in the region around the airport at the time of the incident.

The incident will be looked at by the FAA and NTSB to see what led to it.
