The Beech-35 was cruising at 7,500 feet when the pilot noticed the aircraft drifting off to the right. The pilot corrected by rolling the aircraft to the left. He then felt something break and the aircraft began rolling to the right. The pilot twisted the control yoke to the left until the yoke was almost upside down, but the aircraft continued to roll to the right into a progressively steeper, spiraling descent. Find out what happens to this pilot, and learn how to prevent similar situations.
