Except the landing went ok, but the takeoff did not.

After safe emergency landing, pilot crashes on takeoff

What is the squealing sound towards the end of the video?

I'm pretty sure that wasn't added after the fact, you can lock the
wheels up on a Cessna pretty easily. I assume the PIC (passenger in
command at that point?) knew it was going to end badly and locked 'em
up to try and slow down before hitting the trees. Sounded similar to
what I've done in my 152 if I ride the brakes too hard just after
touchdown.

I agree that it sounds like locked up brakes, but it's not heard until the
aircraft has stopped. I guess it could be the sound delay from the distance
the taping was done from...

What is it with these fuel starvation incidents? Never ceases
to amaze me that such a preventable thing continues to occur.
I mean, its not rocket science...

1) know how much useable fuel you have in the tanks.

2) know what your fuel burn is per hour.
(be conservative and add extra for take-off and climb)

3) divide 1) by 2) ... that's how long the engine will run.

4) subtract a half an hour (just make it an hour for IFR or night)

5) add result to your departure time: that is when you
need to be on short final SOMEWHERE.

Improper or lack of leaning.

No doubt. I'm AMAZED at how often perfectly good airplanes get bent up
by running outa gas... While that wasn't the cause of the accident
here, it was a contributing factor. There are so many things that can
go wrong (that you don't have control of) you'd think every pilot would
concentrate on things they CAN control like fuel on board. Oy.

That incident is not going to help the cause of other 210 owners come
policy renewal time. I've been told by insurance people the 210 is
expensive to insure, although I can't figure out why it'd cost more
than a 182/177/172RG...

Because, just as the Bonanza, they tend to be "Doctor/Lawyer" airplanes.
