A Beechcraft 200 Super King Air, N81PF, owned by North Bay Charter, LLC, and operated by Jet Express Services, crashed into rolling terrain near Strasburg, CO. The flight was operating on an instrument flight rules flight plan. The flight departed about 17:18 from Broomfield-Jeffco Airport, CO (BJC), with two pilots and eight passengers aboard. N81PF was one of three airplanes transporting members of the Oklahoma State University Cowboys basketball team and associated team personnel to Stillwater Regional Airport, OK (SWO), after a game at the University of Colorado at Boulder that afternoon. All 10 occupants aboard N81PF (two pilots, two players, and 6 OSU broadcasters & members of the OSU coaching staff) were killed, and the airplane was destroyed by impact forces and a post crash fire. Instrument meteorological conditions prevailed at the time of the accident.

Probable Cause:

The National Transportation Safety Board determines that the probable cause of this accident was the pilot’s spatial disorientation resulting from his failure to maintain positive manual control of the airplane with the available flight instrumentation.
Contributing to the cause of the accident was the loss of a.c. electrical power during instrument meteorological conditions.
