Narrative:
The aircraft, a Piper PA-23-250 Aztec, N27FT, impacted a tree and a house in Plaisance during an attempted forced landing following a loss of power shortly after takeoff from Ogle Airport - SYGO, Georgetown. The aircraft was destroyed by impact and post-impact fire, as was the house. The two persons onboard the aircraft received fatal injuries. There were no reported injuries on the ground.

Cause:
The probable cause of this accident was due to failure of the right engine and possible loss of power in the left engine, and subsequent attempted forced landing in which the aircraft was destroyed by post impact forces and post-impact fire.
Contributory Causes:
1. Probable failure by the pilot/operator to observe both the aircraft’s maintenance schedule and the schedule recommended for servicing of the magnetos.
2. The possibility that the pilot may not have reacted adequately to the engine failure
