Descripción:
The C-82 Packet plane operated on spraying missions in Florida. It had just completed a low-level mission against an infestation of Mediterranean fruit fly and was being ferried back from Miami-Masters Field, FL to Boca Raton Public Airport, FL (BCT). At an altitude of 200 feet smoke began to appear from the nr.2 engine. The aircraft was in a banking turn at the time and subsequently plummeted to the ground bursting into flames, the pilot having lost control due to differential thrust while the aircraft was in a turning manoeuvre.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The Board determines that the probable cause of this accident was loss of power on the left engine and the drag-induced effect of the unfeathered left, propeller, resulting in loss of directional control during an attempted go-around."
