Five people who were killed when a small plane crashed soon after takeoff near Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport in Little Rock, Arkansas were a group of environmental consultants.
All of the deceased worked at The Center for Toxicology and Environmental Health, and they were traveling to Columbus, Ohio, to respond to a recent deadly explosion at a metal manufacturing plant in Bedford.
The twin-engine plane they were traveling in went down around noon Wednesday near a factory within a mile of the airport.
Everyone on the plane, including the pilot, worked at CTEH. The company specializes in environmental data collection and incident management – especially in terms of industrial hygiene and toxicology.

Multiple law enforcement agencies were on the scene investigating the wreck, with local reports indicating there were high winds and thunderstorms in the area at the time of the crash.
Dr. Paul Nony, senior vice president of CTEH, confirmed that the five deceased worked at the company. They were heading to investigate I. Schumann & Co’s recent explosion – in which the brass and bronze alloys firm burst into flames, leaving molten metal raining down on the surrounding area, and killing one staff member.
Dr Nony told DailyMail.com: ‘We are incredibly saddened to report the loss of our Little Rock colleagues. We ask everyone to keep the families of those lost and the entire CTEH team in their thoughts and prayers.’

It’s now been revealed that the five people who died in the small plane crash on Wednesday were in fact environmental consultants who were responding to the Bedford blast
Lt. Cody Burk, spokesperson for the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office, said there were ‘no survivors’ after the plane crash. The FAA is currently responding and investigating the cause of the incident.
The Federal Aviation Administration said the plane was a twin propeller-engine Beech BE20, which was bound for Columbus International Airport in Ohio when it went down shortly after takeoff.
A large plume of white smoke could be seen rising from the crash site, which was reportedly outside a 3M Co factory plant.
It is currently unclear what caused the plane to crash that killed the five colleagues.
Steve Mullins, 46, was killed as a result of the explosion at the Northeast Ohio business, which makes brass and bronze alloy. The five people on board the plane on Wednesday died while en route to investigating the blast that killed Mullins

Authorities noted that the weather in the area had been severe, which was hampering their immediate investigations into the wreck.
According to Arkansas Storm Team meteorologist Pat Walker, weather around the airport had seen significant wind gusts around the time of the crash.
The National Weather Service said a line of thunderstorms had been moving through the area, including wind gusts of 40 miles per hour. The Pulaski Sheriff’s Office said it is investigating if weather was a factor in the incident.

“The local major hospital institute has told all of their employees that they are forbidden to speak out about anything related to this toxic spill. They are not allowed to do interviews, they are not allowed to go on camera, write quotes or comment about anything going on. Experts from the local community have been told, ‘Do not speak, this is not your business this is the business of the federal government, the state government, and the railroad company,” Moore said. “They all received emails and work calls. Some of them have inquired about speaking and they were told to keep out of it.”
“We need answers. The playbook now in the United States by the Deep State or corporate America or the government is always if you are not allowed to talk about it its probably true. If you are de-platformed, if you are censored, if you are isolated, if you are fired for speaking up, you are probably telling the truth and we learned that every day. Every conspiracy theory that has been unfolded about Covid has been proven to be true.
“It’s just as easy for the government to attack the community after an accident like this by coming in under the pretense they are going to help as it is for them to attack you and create the incident. The government to me shouldn’t be trusted at either end of an accident. As Ronald Reagan said, ‘If you hear a knock on the door and somebody says we are from the government and we are here to help, you slam the door and go the other way. That’s how the majority of the people in our community feel.”
