NTSB Prelim: Cirrus Design Corp SR22

The Airplane Impacted Trees And Terrain And Came To Rest Against A Home

Location: Canton, TX Accident Number: CEN24FA073
Date & Time: December 26, 2023, 18:13 Local Registration: N858RC
Aircraft: Cirrus Design Corp SR22 Injuries: 1 Fatal
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General aviation - Personal

On December 26, 2023, about 1813 central standard time, a Cirrus Design Corp SR22, N858RC, was destroyed when it was involved in an accident near Canton, Texas. The pilot was fatally injured. The airplane was operated under Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a personal flight.

A witness heard radio transmissions from the pilot of N858RC reporting that the airplane was west of Thompson Field Airport, Canton, Texas. He then heard additional transmissions from the pilot reporting that the airplane was on the downwind, base, and final legs for runway 13, which was equipped with solar powered deck lights. The witness stated that the radio transmissions were normal. The witness went outside to see the airplane on the night visual approach but could not tell if it was lined up with the runway due to his vantage point. 

The airplane impacted trees and terrain and came to rest against a home. The airplane’s flight path was not in line with runway 13. The airplane was destroyed by impact forces. Postaccident examination of the airplane flight control system confirmed flight control continuity. The propeller and propeller spinner displayed rotational and torsional features consistent with engine operation at the time of impact.
