October 09, Dallas, Texas / Beech King Air


At 13:22 central time, a Beech C90 made a forced landing in a residential area after losing engine power while on approach to Dallas Love Airport. The pilot was seriously injured. The airplane apparently left Dallas in the morning with four passengers. Line personnel in Taos, N.M., reported the airplane landed there and two people deplaned, leaving the airplane empty except for the pilot. The pilot reported that as he turned on the base leg to runway 13L the right engine began to surge. He retracted the gear and turned on the boost pumps, but the airplane was slowing to Vmc, so he reduced power to the left engine and made the forced landing.
