Circumstances:
The twin engine airplane departed Bismarck Airport in the evening on an ambulance flight to Williston, North Dakota, carrying a pilot, a paramedic and a nurse. Few minutes after takeoff, while cruising at an altitude of 14,000 feet by night, the airplane apparently broke up in mid-air, dove into the ground and crashed in an open field located about 15-20 miles northwest of Mandan, in the suburb of Bismarck. The aircraft was totally destroyed and debris were found on a wide area. All three occupants have been killed.
