Default Gravity Wins Again, Palwaukee Splat!

"The twin-engine Cessna 421 was leaking oil from an engine and losing
power when the pilot overshot a runway at Palwaukee Municipal Airport,
hit a building, tore through some shrubbery and came to rest on a lawn
near Hintz Road and Chaddick Drive.

The crash caused extensive damage to the Nedco building's natural gas
line and sprinkler system, MacIsaac said. Company officials could not
be reached for comment.
Hank Schultz was in the lunchroom at nearby Acco Brands when he saw
through a window that a plane was having trouble after takeoff.
"I just saw it coming up over Wolf Road," said Schultz, a production
manager at the office supplies company. "It was in a stall
position--engine up, tail down. Not in a normal takeoff position. We
see planes taking off all the time, and this wasn't normal."

Jiffy Lube needs to open some GA shops, JG

For a bystander to say that it was "leaking oil" means that it was pouring
out at a pretty good clip. Both oil leaks and losing power are signs of a
pretty good size hole in the case -- about the size of a connecting rod
perhaps?
