On August 27, 2020, about 0630 Pacific daylight time, a Beech A36, N1550G, was destroyed when it was involved in an accident near the Benton Field Airport (O85), Redding, California. The pilot and one passenger sustained fatal injuries, and two passengers sustained serious injuries. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations 91 personal flight.
A witness, who was a rated pilot, located on O85, reported that the airplane was departing from runway 33, when it appeared to have "rotated too soon." The witness stated that the airplane became airborne briefly and immediately settled onto the runway before it became airborne a second time. The airplane subsequently touched down slightly beyond the departure end of the runway, crossed a road, and impacted trees, where a post impact fire ensued.
Examination of the accident site by local law enforcement revealed that the airplane came to rest down an embankment and was mostly consumed by fire. All major structural components of the airplane were located within the vicinity of the main wreckage. The wreckage was relocated to a secure location for further examination.
