On September 8, 2023, at about 1841 local time, a Beechcraft 200 Super King Air, N220KW, sustained substantial damage when it impacted heavily wooded terrain in Elk Grove Village, Illinois. The sole pilot onboard received minor injuries.

The pilot departed Chicago-O'Hare International Airport (ORD/KORD), Illinois, at 16:43 local time, on a flight to Waterloo, Iowa. Less than 50 minutes into the flight, before reaching Waterloo Airport (ALO/KALO), Iowa, the pilot encountered an unexpected situation and was cleared to return to his departure point of Chicago-O'Hare International Airport (ORD/KORD), Illinois. On approach to runway 09L, he initiated a go around procedure then a turn to the left for a second circuit to land. While descending on final, he lost control of the airplane due to an apparent fuel starvation event (all engines powerless) then crashed into a wooded area located in Elk Grove Village, less than 4 miles northwest of O'Hare Airport at 18:41 local time.
