NTSB Factual Report

On November 02, 2017, about 1735 Pacific daylight time, a Beech B95, N9628R, sustained substantial damage during a forced landing after a reported loss of engine power near the North Las Vegas Airport (VGT) Las Vegas, Nevada. The flight instructor and commercial rated pilot sustained minor injuries. The airplane was registered to Sin City Flying Club LLC, and operated by the pilot under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as an instructional flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan was filed for the local flight. The flight departed VGT about 1630.

According to the pilot, on final approach, the engine began to surge and lost power. Unable to make the airport, he decided to land on a nearby field located on a golf course. During the landing, the airplane's right wing struck an obstacle which resulted in substantial damage to the wing. The airplane came to rest in a pond, submerged in water.

The airplane was recovered to a secure storage facility for further examination.
