Narrative:
The plane was found abandoned and had been used for transporting drugs. Apparently the pilot had to make an unplanned emergency landing.

Note: The registration is absolutely a false one. The crashed King Air has "small bulbs/inlets" added under the engine intake. Only the B90 and C90 series have it. It also has FOUR side windows and the C90A at the picture has FIVE. So it's definitely NOT Beech C90A PT-WNW!
