SummaryEngine parts were observed falling from a height of 3,000 feet. Soon after, the plane was seen losing altitude until it crashed into trees 1.5 miles southeast of Oneida County Airport. Failure of the left engine shortly after takeoff coupled with increased drag due to loss of the left cowling and reduced power output of the right engine resulting from the high pitch position of the right propeller.
