On July 29th, 2015, a TBM-700 (N425KJ) was on visual approach for the Milwaukee Timmerman Airport (KMWC) runway 33R.
Onboard was Anna Trustey, a soon-to-be senior at a Massachusetts boarding school. She had just been elected “Senior Prefect” of the school and was going to be the leader of student leaders at the start of the school year.
Before Anna left for summer break, she proposed to have a block party when students return for the school year. It would be held before Halloween, there will be cider, donuts, caramel apples, and it would last the whole night. There would be face painting, dances, whatever people wanted to do. And we would paint purple pumpkins, to support children with epilepsy.
The TBM, operated by Anna’s father, had taken off from the Beverly Municipal Airport (KBVY) 2 hours ago. Anna was on her way to a school visit at Marquette University.
The TBM touched down at 18:09:56. According to Timmerman ATC, the plane touched down in the touchdown zone, but a loud squeal came from the plane as it touched down.
“Go-Around.” The pilot of the TBM said.
ATC cleared the TBM for a left traffic pattern. The TBM pitched up and started its left turn.
It never made the pattern.
The plane had stalled and entered an uncontrolled spin, left-wing down. It struck the terrain within seconds.
The aircraft burst into flames immediately after. Anna and her father was sadly killed in the crash.
Tonight, we will be having a block party at my school. The party that Anna wanted.
The boarding school that she attended had not forgotten about her. We are having a block party with cider, donuts, caramel apples, and it would last the whole night. There would be face painting, dances, whatever people wanted to do. And we would paint purple pumpkins, to support children with epilepsy.
RIP N425KJ, RIP Anna
