Just read some news reports of 3 killed in a BE58 10 miles short of BNA.
Sorry I haven't put the links on here, but there is a report on Fox News that says the airplane came spinning out of the clouds.

I hadn't heard about it, but had several calls from friends who were relieved to hear my voice.


RIP to all.

I'm from the area so it got my attention... I got ahold of the audio. The pilot reported he was in a spin right before it crashed. Wasn't much ATC could have done for the guy, just bad luck I guess
