On August 7, 2020, about 1036 eastern daylight time, a Cessna P210N, N6300W, was destroyed when it was involved in an accident near Allendale, South Carolina. The pilot and passenger were seriously injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

According to the pilot, he departed Gainesville Regional Airport (GNV), Gainesville, Florida, with an intended destination of Allendale County Airport (AQX), Allendale, South Carolina. Prior to departure, he fueled the airplane with 58 gallons of fuel. The flight was unremarkable, but when the airplane was on short final approach to runway 35 at AQX, the engine experienced a total loss of power. The propeller continued to rotate and the pilot attempted to restart the engine by switching the selected fuel tank but was unsuccessful. The pilot realized that the airplane was not able to reach the runway and he attempted to perform a forced landing to a field.

During the forced landing, the airplane struck trees and impacted the ground. After impact, the pilot and passenger egressed, and then a postimpact fire ensued.

The airframe and engine were retained for examination.

ALLENDALE, South Carolina (WRDW/WAGT) - A small plane was destroyed in a crash near the Allendale County Airport, but the two people aboard it survived, according to authorities.

The plane crashed around 10:30 a.m. Friday about a mile south of the airport, according to Federal Aviation Administration regional spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen. She said two people were onboard the Cessna P210N Pressurized Centurion II. The FAA will release the aircraft registration after investigators confirm it at the scene, according to Bergen.

Sheriff Tom Carter said the plane was destroyed at the crash site off Highway 278. The people who’d been inside the aircraft were taken to a hospital, according to authorities.

The airport director told News 12 the plane was supposed to land at the airport, but never made it.

Local authorities don’t know why the plane crashed, but they know a fire was involved.

The FAA will investigate the crash and the National Transportation Safety Board will determine the probable cause of the accident, according the Bergen.

The 95-acre general aviation airport is owned by Allendale County and is a couple of nautical miles southeast of Allendale.
