Fort Worth - Mesquite
Crew on board:
Pax on board:
The pilot, sole on board, was completing a short 15-minutes positioning flight from Dallas-Fort Worth to Mesquite Metro Airport located east of Dallas. On approach, the engine lost power and failed. The pilot attempted an emergency landing in an open field located few miles from the airport. On touchdown, both wings were torn off and the aircraft slid for few dozen yards before coming to rest in flames. The pilot was injured and the aircraft was damaged beyond repair (the fuselage remained intact).
