April 2, 2009, Baker, Calif., Cessna 337G Skymaster


At about 1625 Pacific time, the airplane encountered uneven terrain during a forced landing. The airline transport pilot and a passenger sustained minor injuries; the airplane sustained substantial damage to the airframe and right wing. Visual conditions prevailed.

The pilot later reported he was in cruise flight when an engine began to sputter and lose power. Then the other engine lost power, and he was unable to maintain altitude. He landed on a gravel road. The landing gear fractured and separated, and the airplane came to rest with the right wing on the ground.
