Investigation of the fatal 19 November, 1996, United Express Beech 1900 runway collision at Quincy, Illinois, has led the US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) to recommend exit-door improvements. It is believed that occupants survived the collision with a King Air 90, but all 12 died in a fire after rescuers were unable to open the jammed main door. NTSB investigators say the lack of "clear, concise and complete instructions" for opening the door delayed rescue.
