NTSB description

On March 28, 2005, about 0930 central standard time, a Mooney M20E, N6092Q, owned and piloted by a private pilot, was destroyed when it impacted terrain near Bloomfield, Iowa. The airplane had just departed the Bloomfield Municipal Airport (4K6), and was en route to the Jonesboro Municipal Airport (JBR), Jonesboro, Arkansas. The 14 CFR Part 91 personal flight was operating in visual meteorological conditions without a flight plan. The passenger was fatally injured, and the pilot received serious injuries.

According to a report filed by the pilot there were no mechanical malfunctions of the airplane.

A witness reported that he saw the airplane take off to the south and then make a right turn back to the north. The witness reported that the airplane then turned to the east and as it did, it "turned vertical with the ground, spun back the other way and the nose went toward the ground. It just did a nose dive." The witness reported that the airplane was at a low altitude.

Another witness reported hearing the airplane's engine "get very loud. When I turned to look the plane went on it's side and then went straight down."
