What: Poulin L/Cullen D Lancair Legacy
Where: Murrieta, CA
When: May 30 2008
Who: 2 aboard, both fatalities
Why: The Lancair Legacy was heading south to the runway, made a hard right turn and nosed into the ground with one “loud engine rev” before the engine ” died out.” The propeller was not under power when it impacted terrain. The wings, wreckage, vegetation, and ground did not indicate signs of a fuel spill. It appeared that the airplane had run out of fuel and stalled on approach, causing it to enter a spin prior to impacting terrain in a near vertical attitude. Cited as cause was the pilot’s inadequate preflight planning, which resulted in the loss of engine power.
