Circumstances:
On final approach to runway 01, the aircraft suddenly banked on its right and hit the ground short of runway threshold. The right landing gear was torn off and the aircraft crashed and burned. The pilot was seriously injured. It seems that he encountered engine problem while taking off from Nantucket airport. Samples of fuel taken from left and right tanks revealed that they were different.
