Overview

On December 14, 1994, about 1146:23 pacific standard time, a Phoenix Air Group, Inc. (Phoenix Air) Learjet 35A, registration N521PA, crashed in Fresno, California. Operating under the call sign Dart 21, the flightcrew had declared an emergency inbound to Fresno Air Terminal due to engine fire
indications. They flew the airplane toward a right base for their requested runway,
but the airplane continued past the airport. The flightcrew was heard on Fresno
tower frequency attempting to diagnose the emergency conditions and control the
airplane until it crashed, with landing gear down, on an avenue in Fresno. Both
pilots were fatally injured. Twenty-one persons on the ground were injured, and 12
apartment units in 2 buildings were destroyed or substantially damaged by impact
and fire.
The National Transportation Safety Board determines that the probable
causes of this accident were: 1) improperly installed electrical wiring for special
mission operations that led to an in-flight fii that caused airplane systems and
structural damage and subsequent airplane control difficulties; 2) improper
maintenance and inspection procedures followed by the operator; and, 3) inadequate
oversight and approval of the maintenance and inspection practice by the operator in
the installation of the special mission systems. Safety issues in this report focused on maintenance, inspection and quality assurance. Safety recommendations concerning these issues were made to the Federal Aviation Administration, Phoenix Air, and the Department of Defense.
