Location: Burleson, TX Accident Number: CEN23LA021
Date & Time: October 27, 2022, 20:07 Local Registration: N36X
Aircraft: Cessna T210 Injuries: 2 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General aviation - Executive/Corporate

On October 27, 2022, about 2007 central daylight time, a Cessna T210M, N36X, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Fort Worth Spinks Airport (FWS), Burleson, Texas. The pilot and passenger were not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part91 corporate flight.

The pilot reported that the flight was initiated from the Columbus Airport, Columbus, Georgia (CSG), about 0350, with the fuel selector on the right fuel tank. About 2 hours into the flight, the fuel selector was switched to the left tank, and when the airplane was about 30 nm from FWS, the fuel selector was switched back to the right tank. The pilot maneuvered the airplane onto the final approach for runway 18 at FWS, and when he was about ½ mile from the approach threshold, at an altitude of about 200 ft agl, he attempted to increase engine power, but the engine did not respond.

He ensured that the fuel mixture was set to full rich and switched the fuel selector back to the left tank, but the engine still did not respond. The pilot reported that he use pitch to maintain the airplane’s approach speed and landed the airplane. During the landing, the airplane struck the localizer antenna array that was about 1,000 ft north of the runway 18 approach threshold. The airplane touched down in the grass area between the antenna array and the runway. The right main landing gear collapsed, the left elevator was torn from aircraft, and the right horizontal stabilizer structure was bent upward and aft during the accident sequence.
