A private airplane carrying a Kansas family crashed in Nashville, Tenn., on Monday afternoon prior to the opening of the national Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show. There were no survivors, according to Tennessee news sources.
The Gulfstream 690C was registered to Mid-Kansas Agri-Co in Pawnee Rock. The plane flew out of Great Bend, Kan., around 2:45 p.m. Monday and was scheduled to land at the John C. Tune airport just before 5 p.m.
The victims were identified as 62-year-old pilot Glenn Mull; his wife, Elaine; their daughter, 40-year-old Amy Harter; and granddaughter, 16-year-old Samantha Harter. Mull owned Mull Farms and Feeding in Pawnee Rock, about 15 miles southwest of Great Bend.
They were traveling to the annual cattle convention and trade show when their plane crashed 10 miles south of John C. Tune Airport in Nashville, where it was scheduled to land around 5 p.m. They had taken off from the Great Bend Municipal Airport.
The plane reportedly missed its first approach at the airfield and was preparing for a second attempt at landing when it crashed into a field behind the Bellevue YMCA.
