Narrative:
A Mitsubishi MU-300 corporate jet, N710MB, impacted the terrain after being cleared for the ILS runway 30 approach at Goodland Municipal, KS. The airplane was destroyed by the impact and post- accident fire. The crew of two and the one passenger aboard received fatal injuries. The flight departed Scott City Municipal Airport, KS, at 12:48 with the intended destination of Glasgow International Airport, MT (GGW), with an intermediate stop at Goodland-Renner Field, KS (GLD).

The flight was cleared for the ILS approach to runway 30. The flying pilot was the pilot-in-command. According to the cockpit voice recorder transcripts, the flying pilot had difficulty making a stabilized approach. During the initial descent the airplane entered an over-speed condition and the airplane flew through the localizer. During his attempt to re-establish the airplane on the localizer, the pilot allowed the airspeed to decrease to the point where the prestall 'stick-shaker' activated. The stick shaker continued until the airplane departed controlled flight and impacted terrain.


PROBABLE CAUSE: "The pilot-in-command's inadvertent stall of the airplane. A factor associated with the accident is the pilot-in-command's poor IFR procedures."

Classification:
Loss of control
