The crash is likely caused by Catastrophic engine failure.
The Beechcraft B200 King Air clipped the rear of the Spotlight outlet at 9am just metres from the Tullamarine Fwy, killing the five men.
Pilot Max Quartermain, a seasoned pilot with 30 years of experience, made at least one mayday call and tried to return to Essendon Airport moments before the crash.
