Circumstances:
Passengers were returning to Lake Cumberland following a fishing trip in Canada. After a intermediate stop in Dayton, the pilot was continuing to Lake Cumberland when, en route, he encountered technical problems with both engines. He was able to divert to Georgetown-Scott County-Marshall Regional Airport for an emergency landing but on touchdown, the aircraft went out of control, lost its landing gear and came to rest in a grassy area. While all four occupants were slightly injured, the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
