NTSB description

On July 18, 2009, approximately 1905 central daylight time, a 1944 Beech TC-45J, N6688, was destroyed during a forced landing after a loss of engine power near Verdel, Nebraska. The pilot sustained serious injuries and the passenger was fatally injured. The airplane was registered to and operated by the pilot. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and no flight plan was filed for the local pleasure flight conducted under 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91. The flight originated from the pilot's private airstrip in Lynch, NE, at an undetermined time.

The airplane came to rest in a clearing and a post-impact fire consumed the fuselage. Both of the radial engines had separated from the airframe and sustained impact damage.

The pilot held a private pilot certificate for airplane single-engine land and was not certified to operate multi-engine airplanes.
