NTSB Factual Report

On July 30, 2018, about 1000 central daylight time, a Beech A36 airplane, N1856W, impacted terrain following a power loss while on a visual approach to Brainerd Lakes Regional Airport (BRD), Brainerd, Minnesota. The private pilot and passenger were not injured, and the airplane was substantially damaged. The airplane was registered to and operated by the pilot under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a personal flight. Day visual meteorological conditions prevailed for the flight, which departed from Poplar Grove Airport (C77), Poplar Grove, Illinois about 0807.

About two miles prior to landing at BRD, the pilot noticed the engine sputter and stop. He attempted several corrective actions, to include switching to the right tank on the fuel selector and increasing the mixture control, with no effect. The pilot executed a forced landing into birch trees, which damaged both wings. The airplane came to rest nose down and the pilot and passenger exited without injury. The airplane has been recovered for further examination.
