A Beechcraft 200 Super King Air, operating as Kalitta Charters flight 85, impacted wooded terrain while on an instrument approach to runway 6 at Oscoda-Wurtsmith Airport (OSC), Michigan, USA. The airplane was destroyed by impact forces and a post-impact fire and the pilot was fatally injured.
According to the operator, the airplane was en route to OSC to pick up passengers and take them to Memphis, Tennessee. The pilot was cleared for the area navigation (RNAV) global positioning system (GPS) runway 6 approach.
The on-scene examination of the accident site revealed the airplane clipped tree tops prior to ground impact. There was fire after impact that consumed the entire airplane. There were numerous chop marks in the trees. Examination of various actuators indicated the landing gear was down and approach flaps had been set.

The aircraft was owned by Kalitta Equipment LLC and operated by Kalitta Charters.
