Probable cause: An in-flight collision with a bird.
Probable cause: The contamination of snow and ice on the left main landing gear and brake, which prevented the wheel from rolling during touchdown and resulted in a nose-over.
Probable cause: The pilot’s inadequate preflight and inflight fuel planning, which resulted in a total loss of engine power due to fuel exhaustion and subsequent forced landing in a field. Contributing to the accident was the pilot’s delayed action in taking contr
Probable cause: A decrease in oil pressure due to the pilot's unintentional overfilling of the engine oil sump, and the pilot's subsequent decision to perform an off-airport precautionary landing, which resulted in impact with a tree.
Probable cause: The failure of the engine No. 2 connecting rod bearing for reasons that could not be determined due to the extensive secondary engine damage.
Probable cause: The pilot's continued visual flight rules flight into instrument meteorological conditions, which resulted in controlled flight into terrain. Contributing to the accident were the pilot's inadequate preflight weather planning a
Probable cause: The pilot’s failure to maintain clearance from a hangar while taxiing at night.
Probable cause: The pilot's exceedance of the airplane’s critical angle of attack during an attempted go-around, which resulted in an aerodynamic stall.
Few aircraft in the marketplace enjoy the storied history and delivery longevity of the Bonanza and Baron lines from Beechcraft. Introduced in 1947, more than 17,000 Bonanzas have been delivered, in a continuous stream that has at times been reduced to a trickle. Nevertheless, the venerable Bonanza soldiers on. On the twin-engine side of the […]
Probable cause: The flight instructor's exceedance of the critical angle of attack during a go-around, which resulted in an aerodynamic stall/spin. Contributing to the accident was the flight instructor's failure to familiarize himself with the flight character
