Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal 

On November 17, 2017, about 1215 eastern standard time, a Beech B55, N592SS, was substantially damaged during takeoff from Statesville Regional Airport (SVH), Statesville, North Carolina. The private pilot and flight instructor were not injured. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed at the time, and no flight plan was filed for the instructional flight. The flight was operated by the private pilot under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91.

According to the private pilot, he was conducting a flight review with the flight instructor, who was also his friend. They departed SVH and flew to a practice area where he conducted several maneuvers. The private pilot landed at another airport, where he conducted a full-stop landing and two short-field takeoffs. They then flew back to SVH, where he conducted the instrument landing system approach to runway 28 and a circle-to-land approach on runway 10. Upon landing on runway 10, the private pilot raised the flaps and slowly applied full power on both throttles for a touch-and-go landing. Both engines were producing full power and he rotated just above 90 knots indicated airspeed. The airplane lifted off and began a positive rate of climb. At that time, the airplane yawed hard to the left and he noticed a change in engine sound. The airplane began to descend, bounced on the runway, and collided with a ditch, before skidding to a stop on the edge of the taxiway.

Initial examination of the airplane revealed that the fuselage was substantially damaged. The airplane was retained for further examination.
