Update on Beechcraft/Textron Plant Explosion – December 29, 2019

I haven’t seen many updates that added new information to my recent post – Fifteen People Injured in Wichita Aviation Plant Explosion Yesterday (December 27, 2019). I checked before that post went live and other than some tweets that showed the same photos, I didn’t see anything new. I checked last night and will check again today. It looks like two people remained hospitalized as of yesterday afternoon – https://www.ksn.com/news/local/update-two-remain-in-the-hospital-after-beechcraft-plant-explosion/ (local TV station). From the TV station (updated yesterday afternoon as the initial report was from December 27th shortly after the explosion), it looks like the two are in different hospitals, but both were listed in serious condition.

Bit of background, the company was founded as Beechcraft years ago – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beechcraft#History. It was later acquired by Raytheon and renamed Hawker Beechcraft. In 2014, Textron acquired it and combined it with Cessna. Most people around here still call it Beechcraft and still refer to Cessna as Cessna. Cessna has several plants around town.
