    The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) sent a go-to team to investigate the crash of a Beech Premier IA jet that occurred Wednesday (Feb. 20, 2013) night as the pilot reportedly was attempting to land. Five people reportedly died and two others were injured as the pilot attempted a go-around at the Thomson-McDuffie Regional Airport near Augusta, Georgia. Media sources reported that the pilot of the business jet was on approach to Runway 10 when he elected to abort the landing. The plane, though, reportedly struck the top of a 60-foot concrete utility pole about a quarter of a mile from the end of the runway. The left wing of the aircraft was sheared off, according to reports, and a fuel leak caused a fire as the plane continued to fly about another quarter mile until it crashed in a nearby wooded area. The jet, which took off from Nashville, was owned by a large Southern medical practice, according to authorities. A pilot and a passenger who were injured were taken to a nearby hospital.
