According to the available information, the pilot of the TF-MYX Beechcraft Super King Air 200 Air Ambulance, operated by Air Myflug, had requested a go around before landing at a nearby airport, and flew dangerously fast and low past the drag strip, but quickly lost altitude in what appears to have been an intended low-fly pass of the track and smashed into the ground, the plane erupting into flames upon impact. The Captain, who is said to have had connections with the operators of the strip, died in the crash, along with a Medic who was onboard. The co-pilot was the lone survivor of the crash, and although he hasn’t made any public statements on the incident, it is known that he had made remarks to the Captain about the dangerous flying manuevers before the impact.

Interestingly, the Captain had been involved in another aviation accident 12 years prior, and was treated for injuries by the very same Medic who perished with him in this crash.

Footage was recorded on Aug. 5, 2013
