Bauers claim that the crash was "unavoidable" is a flat out lie and is just putting off the lack of poor judegment and pilot error on the engine of the airplane.

The airstrip was a 1400ft dirt "strip" ideally suited for bush type airplanes designed for getting into tight places, not to mention its hard to get any speed on a dirt runway when you have the parking brake on! Yes, if you read the NTSB preliminary reports it cites the inadequate planning and pilot error!
