Gulfstream G650 Test Flight Crash in New Mexico Kills Four
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Lynn Lunsford said the accident happened around 9.30 a.m. local time when a Gulfstream G650 was taking off from Roswell International Air Center near the city of Roswell. It briefly became airborne before the aircraft slammed into the ground.
The aircraft, which can carry between 14 and 21 people depending on its configuration, was carrying out a test flight and Lunsford said all four people on board were killed.
The G650 is a new twin-engined business jet under development by Gulfstream.
