MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -
The National Transportation Safety Board released its final report this week on the cause of a Demopolis plane crash that killed a Florida family of 7 back in July of 2011.
The twin-engine Cessna 421C was carrying 7 members of the Teutenberg family of Destin, Florida home from a family reunion in Missouri when it experienced engine trouble and an attempt was made at an emergency landing.
All on-board died when the plane struck trees less than 3 miles from the Demopolis airport. A postcrash fire consumed much of the wreckage.
The investigation found that the airplane's right engine failed after a camshaft stopped rotating when its gear experienced a fatigue fracture on one of its gear teeth. The fracture was the result of "abnormal loading" of the gear, but the origin of the loading could not be determined.
While the engine failure was partially to blame for the accident, the NTSB said the craft was designed with the capability to fly on a single engine and the cause of the crash was ruled as pilot failure to maintain control during a single-engine approach.
The NTSB also said in its final report that the pilot failed to fly an appropriate traffic pattern for the plane on a single-engine landing.
