September 5, 2011, Saratoga, Wyo., Cessna T210M Turbo Centurion


At about 1420 Mountain time, the airplane sustained substantial damage when it impacted terrain following a loss of engine power during an aborted landing. The private pilot and his three passengers sustained serious injuries. Visual conditions prevailed; an IFR flight plan was filed.

As the airplane approached Runway 23, wind blew the airplane left of the runway centerline. The pilot aborted the landing and initiated a go-around. As the airplane approached the departure end of the runway, the engine suffered a complete loss of power. The pilot initiated a forced landing straight ahead to an open area on the airport property. During the landing roll, the airplane struck an airport parameter fence and impacted a road embankment. Subsequently, the airplane nosed over.
