April 11, 2010, Arecibo, Puerto Rico, Beech 95-A55 Baron


The airplane was substantially damaged at 1745 Atlantic time, after impacting the ground during a forced landing. The private pilot/owner and sole passenger were seriously injured. Visual conditions prevailed. The passenger subsequently reported one engine had failed in flight and the pilot elected to shut down the other engine.

Neither propeller displayed rotation at impact. The fuel filters were removed and examined. They contained neither fuel nor evidence of any foreign matter. The fuel selector handle located inside the cockpit was separated during the impact sequence and tank selection could not be determined.
