Beschrijving:
During cruise flight, at 5000 feet, the pilot heard a loud "bang". The right hand engine was on fire and the engine was shut down. When the pilot attempted to feather propeller, the propeller did not feather. When the pilot pulled the extinguishing agent for the right engine, the engine separated from the aircraft. The airplane then lost hydraulic pressure. The pilot established visual contact with Donalsonville Municipal Airport, and made an emergency landing on runway 18 without further incident. The right engine was found ten miles southwest of Donalsonville Municipal Airport, in the backyard of a farmer's home.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The failure and separation of No.12 cylinder from the engine case that resulted in an in-flight oil fed fire; and the subsequent separation of the right engine from airframe."
