This article calls the plane a "turboprop" and the NY Daily News reported it as a small jet. It is an old piston powered Commander. Doesn't this lead you to severely question the efficacy of the press.

I agree completely, especially when the photos clearly show N30MB and they could have just looked here: http://registry.faa.gov/aircraftinquiry/NNum_Results.aspx?NNumbertxt=30MB . And it's not as if that FAA site is some insider thing either; in a simple Google search for "lookup airplane number" it's the first result. It's not that hard to get these things right; it's as if they're not even trying.

Or just plug N30MB into Google.

I used to fly for this company several years ago and it was indeed a very old, Twin Piston, Aero Commander 500B or possibly U model aircraft. These aircraft fly really well on one engine however, I'm not going to do any "Monday morning Quarter Back" preaching. Here is a link to another article that is somewhat accurate in its details of the accident.

This is the kind of Aircraft that crashed according to the news report on Yahoo: Aero Commander 500 cargo jet. An Aero Commander 500 Jet?
I thought these were Piston Powered?

It is not surprising to me that the media would get something completely wrong in an aviation story. This was in fact a twin piston. http://registry.faa.gov/aircraftinquiry/NNum_Results.aspx?NNumbertxt=30MB

Well Damn... they didnt waste time reassigning that flight number to another aero commander. The show must go on I guess..

For the media to get the facts right on this story would require practicing an ancient art that long ago fell into disuse and neglect... journalism.

Looks like it was actually operating as Central Commuter flight CTL62 at the time -- http://flightaware.com/live/flight/CTL62/history/20141118/0545Z/KMDW/KOSU

We received only two actual positions for that flight, at altitudes of 77 and 117 feet.

That's 77 and 117 MPH, not feet. 800 feet was the altitude.

You're correct. We should make those column header alignments less confusing :)

August 2, 2011...no, I'm thinking that's not the flight.

NTSB preliminary report states that the pilot elected to make left traffic while attempting to return to Midway. That was 3 left hand turns he made with a failed left engine. Isn't that just begging for a VMC roll? I don't get it.
