Circumstances:
On April 13, 2019 about 1514 CDT, a Rockwell International NA-265-65 airplane, N265DS, impacted terrain near New Albany, Mississippi, following a reported electrical malfunction. The two commercial pilots and one passenger were fatally injured. The airplane was destroyed. The airplane was registered to Classic Aviation Inc. and operated as a 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight. Instrument meteorological conditions were reported at the accident site and along the route of flight about the time of the accident, and the flight was operated on an instrument flight rules flight plan. The flight originated from University-Oxford Airport (UOX), Mississippi, at 1506 and was destined for Marion County-Rankin Fite Airport (HAB), Georgia. According to recordings of ATC communications, at 1501 the flight requested a clearance from ATC to depart UOX and proceed to HAB. ATC provided a clearance. The next communication occurred at 1506 when the flight reported climbing through 1,300 ft. ATC notified the flight of moderate to severe precipitation in the area of UOX and provided a clearance to 11k ft MSL. At 1508 ATC queried the flight for their altitude and informed the flight of moderate to heavy precipitation along their route of flight. The flight acknowledged the radio call and informed ATC they were climbing through 9k ft for 11k ft. About 1512 ATC queried the flight if they were having navigation issues or if they were deviating. The flight responded they were deviating and that they were having "AC voltage problems." The last radio call received from the flight was an acknowledgement of a heading assignment to 095° at 1513. The airplane disappeared from radar about 30 seconds later and the ATC controller tried unsuccessfully to raise the flight on the radio at that time. Preliminary radar data began tracking the airplane at 1506. The airplane transponder stopped transmitting Mode 3A information about 1508, so no altitude information was available for the remainder of the flight. The airplane maintained an approximate heading of 080° from 1506 until about 1510. At 1510 the airplane turned right to about 120° heading. At 1512 the airplane made a left turn to about 040° heading. At 1513 the airplane began a right turn that continued to a heading of about 270° until radar contact was lost at 1513:26. The final radar return was about .5 miles southeast of the accident location. The airplane impacted terrain in a wooded and rural area on a 005° heading. Broken trees indicated the airplane attitude at impact was about 50° right bank and 20° nose low. The wreckage was highly fragmented and spread over an area about 800 ft wide and 1,500 ft long. A cockpit voice recorder was recovered and sent to the NTSB recorder's laboratory for examination.
