March 26, Englewood, Colo. / Socata TBM 700


At 07:19 mountain time, a Socata TBM 700 crashed right after takeoff from Centennial Airport. The pilot was killed. Radar data showed the airplane taking off from runway 17L. As the pilot was handed off to Denver Departure, the airplane was climbing in a left turn, then descending as the turn continued. Restricted visibility precluded tower personnel from observing the departure.
