Cessna 310R, N501N was destroyed during a collision with trees and structures in a residential area, while attempting an emergency landing to the Sanford Orlando International Airport (SFB), Orlando, Florida.
A preliminary review of air traffic control (ATC) radar and voice communication recordings revealed that shortly after reaching a cruising altitude of 6,000 feet, the crew declared an emergency at 08:32:50. They advised ATC there was "smoke in the cockpit," and announced their intention to land at SFB. After ATC cleared the airplane to fly directly to SFB and descend, the target identified as the accident airplane turned in the direction of SFB, and descended. Shortly after, ATC advised the airplane, "cleared to land any runway." The last radio transmission from the crew, at 08:33:15, was cut off mid-sentence.
