Détails:
A Beechcraft B300 Super King Air 350 operated by the US Army force landed in field near Kawrgosk, Iraq.
The aircraft departed Erbil International Airport, Iraq. While at an altitude of over FL200, the no.1 engine suffered a catastrophic failure. The cabin filled with smoke, limiting the (outside and inside) visibility of the flight crew, causing disorientation. Inadvertently the working no.2 engine was shut down. With the help of both crew members in the cabin, the flight crew attempted to return to Erbil. Meanwhile the cabin was cleared of smoke by opening the outflow valve.
The aircraft was not able to make it back to Erbil and a forced landing was carried out in a field. During the ground slide, the right hand wing just outside the no.2 engine was sheared off after it impacted an obstruction.
