October 03, Clarksville, Tenn. / Piper Twin Comanche


At about 12:15 central time, a Piper PA-30 crashed near Clarksville. The pilot was not injured and the second pilot suffered minor injuries. The pilot was flying the airplane as part of a prepurchase inspection, with the owner, who also held a CFI, riding in the right seat. The left engine failed on takeoff and the attempt to abort the takeoff resulted in a runway excursion. The airplane dragged a wing tip and cartwheeled. Both engines were torn from their mounts.
