Textbook example of a Vmca snap roll after loss of an engine on takeoff roll. This takeoff should have been aborted. At minimum, an effort to execute the cleanup recovery drill should have been made. Neither occurred, resulting in tragic loss of life.
Knowing your recovery drill, having currency in reviewing emergency procedures, and understanding that landing straight ahead may be your only realistic option are good take away from this video.
Another great video on the Cessna 310 crash
A very difficult accident to understand, but likely task saturation, loss of situational awareness, and/or mech problems not communicated. However, as pilots of twin aircraft with complex and high performance systems, we have to be extremely attuned to the challenges of flying these planes in difficult conditions…especially single pilot!
They shut down the wrong engine! This is why we do our drill the same way EVERY time, so we don’t miss a critical step. That can be difficult when you get that shot of adrenaline at the outset of recognizing an engine problem. However… Slow is smooth, and Smooth is fast! Execute your drill completely the same way every time to avoid this kind of outcome.
