Narrative:
On July 13, 2017 about 0810 central daylight time, a Piper Cheyenne, PA-31T airplane, N47GW, impacted terrain near Tyler, Texas. The airline transport rated pilot and sole passenger were fatally injured, and the airplane was destroyed. The airplane was registered to and operated by T-210 Holdings, LLC, Dover, Delaware under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a business fight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and the airplane was an instrument flight plan. The cross-country flight was originating at the time of the accident, and was en-route to Midland, Texas.

Preliminary information indicates that shortly after departure, the airplane descended into terrain. The on-site examination of the wreckage revealed the airplane impacted an open field surrounded by trees. The wreckage was located on the edge of a small pond about one-half mile from the end of runway 17. There was not a post-crash fire; however, fuel was found at the site.

After the initial on-site documentation of the wreckage, the airplane was recovered to a secure facility, for further examination.
