Détails:
The aircraft, a Beechcraft B100 King Air, N811BL, impacted terrain near Pearland, Texas. The private rated pilot, sole occupant, was fatally injured and the airplane was destroyed.
The airplane made the RNAV 32 approach to the Pearland Regional airport (KLVJ), with a circling maneuver to land on runway 14. The airplane then performed a missed approach, before disappearing from radar.
Three witnesses, who were working in an oil field, reported seeing the airplane impact the ground nose first in a rural field used for ranch land/oil field.

At 0853, the automated weather observation facility located at KLVJ, recorded wind from 180 degrees at 8 knots, 5 miles visibility, mist, an overcast sky at 300 feet, temperature 69 degrees Fahrenheit (F), dew point 61 F, and a barometric pressure of 30.01 inches of mercury.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The noninstrument-rated pilot's loss of airplane control during a missed instrument approach. Contributing to the accident was the pilot's decision to file an instrument flight rules flight plan and to fly into known instrument meteorological conditions."
