Wow, sounds like that plane should have not been in the air.

NTSB Identification: WPR12FA012
14 CFR Part 91: General Aviation
Accident occurred Sunday, October 16, 2011 in Daggett, CA
Aircraft: BEECH E33, registration: N7011N
Injuries: 3 Fatal.

This is preliminary information, subject to change, and may contain errors. Any errors in this report will be corrected when the final report has been completed.

On October 16, 2011, at 1256 Pacific daylight time, the pilot of a Beech E33, N7011N, reported experiencing a loss of engine power and the airplane subsequently impacted terrain during the forced landing nine miles northeast of the Daggett-Barstow Airport, Daggett, California. The airplane was operated by Fly Corona! as a rental airplane under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91. The private pilot who had rented the airplane and his two passengers were fatally injured, and the airplane was substantially damaged. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan was filed. The flight originated from North Las Vegas, Nevada, about 1200.

A US Army helicopter pilot in the area at the time of the accident reported that he heard the pilot state on the Daggett-Barstow airport radio frequency that he had an engine problem and was 10 miles north of Barstow-Daggett airport. He then observed the airplane flying on a southwesterly course about 500 feet above ground level (agl) as it approached a series of power lines. The airplane then pitched up 15 degrees, yawed to the right, and made two 360-degree rotations while in a vertical descent before the airplane impacted terrain. There was no post impact fire.

Examination of the engine revealed a 2-inch hole in the top of the crank case between the number 3 and 4 cylinders. Metal flakes were identified in the folds of the oil filter, and metal flakes were observed distributed on the interior surface of the oil sump. The number 1 piston connecting rod was not attached to the crankshaft and the end cap was bent flat. The connecting rod and end cap were not discolored. The number 4 and 6 connecting rods had separated from the crank shaft and exhibited black discoloration consistent with extreme thermal stress. The number 5 connecting rod was attached to the crankshaft with its end cap attach bolts in place, however, it was discolored brownish-black. The bearing had extruded and deformed between the crankshaft and connecting rod yoke. The number 2 connecting rod was attached to the crankshaft and had dark discolorations. Mechanical damage to the interior of the engine case was evident with the most damage observed by the numbers 1, 2, and 4 cylinders.
NOTE: Any incorrect spelling is intentional to prevent those annoying popups.

When I got out of school with my Airframe and Powerplant certs, I went to work for a flying club/rental place here in Sacramento. I saw some seriously sketchy shit giong on, but about a 6 months in the straw broke the camels back for me. We had a student and teacher endo a Cessna 152 doing touch and go's and the "senior" mechanic and I ran out to the crash site to see what we could do. I helped pull the teacher and student out of the plane relatively free from serious injury while the senior mechanic ran straight for the engine and removed the carb, painted red because it had been pulled off something else for some reason. I walked back, packed my toolbox in the truck and drove straight to the local FFA office. I had kept track of the crazy shit they were doing maintenance wise and reported all of it to the FFA that day....They didn't do Jack Shit That was my last day as an A&P and subsequently several planes crashed out of that club and people did die...

That sucks. Still should have been able to land the plane right? Sounds like he stalled it, but why the 360's?
Life's a garden. Dig it!!!!

Sounds like he saw the power lines at the last minute yanked back on the stick and put into a stall. Probability pull it back hard enough to flip it backwards causing it to go into a spin.

just my opinion, only one person really knows. When shit like that happens you really got a lot on your plate for about 1 minute.
