    Saw the FAA report. It was pilot error.

    The report didn’t reach a firm conclusion about the cause of the crash. But it notes that the plane was about 126 pounds (57 kilograms) over the maximum allowable landing weight when it crashed and about 3 inches (7.6 centimeters) past the center-of-gravity limit.
    I still find it interesting that the plane hit its belly hard enough to kill five people but there was no fire.

    I always hate news like this. My Dad lost his good friend and flight instructor in a crash 40 years ago. I went to school with his son and remember just feeling awful. Condolences to you Truth.

    Bad news gets worse as I just learned that a friend from our teenage years died in that crash. He had one son and I coached him last year and the year before.

    RIP old friend.

    TBM is known as a family killer. Rich people buy them and crash them.
