Circumstances:
Aircraft left Great Bend Airport, Kansas, at 1445LT bound to Nashville-John C. Tune Airport, Tennessee. Following an uneventful flight, crew started the approach in a reduced visibility due to several cloud layers in the region of Nashville. The approach was abandoned and the captain decided to perform a go around. Few minutes later, while completing a second approach, aircraft was too low and hit tree tops in Bellevue, some 12 km south of the airport. Twin engine aircraft stalled and crashed in flames in a garden located close to a YMCA. Aircraft was destroyed by impact forces and postcrash fire. All four occupants were killed.
