NTSB Factual Report

On February 27, 2016 at 1430 eastern standard time, a Beech 95-C55, N482S, was substantially damaged when it impacted the ground during an aborted landing at Plymouth Municipal Airport (PYM) Plymouth, Massachusetts. The private pilot was seriously injured. The airplane was registered to the pilot and was operating under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a personal flight. Visual meteorological conditions were reported near the accident site and no flight plan was filed.

A witness saw the airplane performing touch and go landings on runway 24, and watched as the airplane landed "hard and ballooned" back into the air. He heard the sound of the engines increase, to "full power." The airplane climbed to about 40 feet, and its pitch angle continued to increase before it rolled to the left. The left roll continued until the airplane reached an inverted attitude, and then descended into the ground.. The airplane struck the grassy area to the left of the runway, where it cartwheeled for approximately 75 ft. before coming to rest upside down.

A Federal Aviation Administration Inspector examined the airplane at the accident site and observed damage to the wings, empennage and fuselage. The cockpit area retained much of its occupiable space and all major components remained attached to the airframe. There was no post-impact fire. The airplane was recovered and retained for further examination.
