The private pilot and pilot-rated passenger in the airplane and a passenger in the vehicle were fatally injured. The driver of the vehicle sustained serious injuries. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal
Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

A witness at HWO reported that he heard an engine run-up being performed near taxiway Bravo before the
airplane’s departure. He stated that the engine was sputtering, “like rough idle.” He heard cycling of the
propeller “a few times” and the engine backfired when power was increased during each sequence. He further
reported that the engine rpm sounded “…high, very high. From low to full rpm repeatedly which was more than
a normal run-up. He was doing it fast.” The witness did not observe the airplane’s takeoff.

According to recorded air traffic control communications, the airplane was cleared for takeoff from runway 10L
and the pilot was instructed to enter the left downwind leg of the traffic pattern, which was acknowledged.
There were no distress calls received from the airplane during the flight.

A pilot-rated witness who was located about 775 ft and 307° from the departure end of runway 10L reported
that he observed the airplane in a very low climb at a “very slow rate.” He attributed the takeoff to be a soft
field takeoff. The witness had diverted his attention when he heard the airplane suddenly experience a total loss
of engine power, adding that it “failed completely.” At that time the airplane was about 100 to 200 ft past the
departure end of the runway and at an altitude “definitely lower than 300 ft above ground level.” The airplane
remained at the same attitude for 1 to 2 seconds, then started a “gentle” right bank while maintaining same
pitch attitude. The airplane then “stalled,” spun, and pitched nose down. He heard a bang sound and noted an

Several video recordings located around the accident site captured the impact sequence. One of the videos
revealed the airplane’s right wing impacted the ground while nearly simultaneously impacting the side of the
vehicle. The engine separated during the impacted sequence and a postcrash fire began about 2 seconds after
the right wing contacted the ground.

According to publicly-available video from a home recording, the first point of impact was located approximately 1000 feet east of the approach end of runway 28L.
