Shortly after taking off, the aircraft made a left bank attempting to return to McConnell Air Force Base and transmitted a distress message. Soon after, the plane crashed to the ground in a nose-down attitude into houses. Remains of a parachute were found in the No. 1 engine which may have led to an asymmetrical thrust condition.
