Default Waiting for final report. Martinaire crash

This sounds so much like what happened to my son flying for Martinaire Jan 13, 2013 but his was a fatality. He probably heard the bang, then squealing as the power turbine blades came apart damaging the exhaust ducts as they were ejected in the above pictures by an independent aviation accident investigator. He said the Caravan my son was flying had obvious engine failure. However, he was blamed with this spatial disorientation BS. I'm very interested in the final report on this similar Martinaire accident by the NTSB which parrots whatever Pratt Whitney says happened. Such a shame to innocent pilots and their families. They seem to p
rotect the industry above all.
