Registration: N788RJ
C/n / msn: AC-164
Fatalities:Fatalities: 1 / Occupants: 2
Airplane damage: Substantial
Category:Accident
Location:West of Fort Morgan Municipal Airport - KFMM, Fort Morgan, CO -   United States of America
Phase: Landing
Nature:Private
Departure airport:Fort Morgan, CO (KFMM)
Destination airport:Fort Morgan, CO (KFMM)
Investigating agency: NTSB
Narrative:
The commercial pilot was landing on a turf runway when a gust of wind rotated the airplane to the right; the pilot added power to perform a go-around. Multiple witnesses reported that the airplane pitched up to a relatively high angle of attack and then entered a steep right turn before it descended to the ground and cart-wheeled. No preaccident mechanical malfunctions or failures were found that would have precluded normal operation. The description from the witnesses and the damage to the airplane is consistent with an aerodynamic stall. The pilotís lack of experience in both multiengine airplanes and in the accident make and model airplane likely contributed to his loss of control during the go-around procedure.
Probable Cause: The pilotís failure to maintain control of the airplane while performing a go-around, which resulted in an aerodynamic stall.
