At about 10:50 eastern time, a Beech B55-T42A crashed while maneuvering near Johnson City, killing the pilot. Numerous witnesses reported seeing the Baron flying formation with a Cessna 210. As the formation approached the airport, it was flying low and fast. The flight appeared to be flying into the break, military-style. The lead 210 executed an abrupt pitch up and left bank, and the Baron hit a 65-foot tree at about the 50-foot level.
