• King Air 90 Near CFIT After High Bank Angle

  • The Pilot flew a manual instrument approach in daylight Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC) followed by an overshoot. During the overshoot the aircraft rolled to the right in excess of 90°. The PNF took control and initially attempted to recover. He then decided to continue the roll to the right through 360°. With a high power setting and an inverted nose down attitude, altitude was lost and speed rose rapidly. In the recovery the aircraft was subjected to a gross over-speed with high G loading in avoiding ground contact.
