On November 3, 2022, at around 10:00 am local time, a small plane crashed as it attempted to land at Tucker-Guthrie Memorial Airport in Harlan County, Kentucky. The crash killed the pilot, who was the only occupant of the aircraft. The victim was a Knoxville, Tennessee doctor who was flying to work at a hospital in Middlesboro, Kentucky. The aircraft crashed into a ravine due to a too low approach to the airport.

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) recently released a report on the cause of the accident. They determined heavy fog and the lack of runway lights caused the accident. The pilot was on his third approach to the airport at the time of the accident. To learn more about the NTSB report, click here.
