PC-6 Non-Fatal Georgetown, OH November 3, 2012

The commercial pilot said he applied full power to go around after a bounced landing. Torque
generated by the turboprop engine pulled the airplane to the right, and the pilot stated that he
was unable to arrest the turn. The airplane collided with trees, resulting in substantial damage
to the right wing, fuselage, vertical stabilizer, both horizontal stabilizers, and the rudder. The
pilot reported there were no mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplane or engine
that would have precluded normal operation.
