Sundance Airport does not appear to be covered by LiveATC yet so no audio is available.

I found a short audio segment from this flight on the KOKC Approach feed (124.6).  They check in at 6000 feet, are given a few traffic advisories and a few minutes later are told to "Squawk 1200, frequency change approved".  No hint of any trouble at that point.  No other audio is available after that.

“I just happened to hear a noise, and I looked, and I saw a jet come in to land,” recalled Melon.

It was a Westwind twin engine, and Melon says mere feet before touching down, there was a roar from the plane, and it tilted straight into the air.

“I saw the angle of attack of that airplane way high, and it was so slow, and then all of a sudden, like slow motion it started just turning and rolling on itself,” said Melon.
