According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) inspector, the airplane was cleared for the VOR RWY 30 approach to the Marfa Airport. Due to the easterly winds, the crew elected to execute a circling approach to land on runway 12. At circling minimums, they turned left to circle on the southwest side of the airport and establish themselves on a right downwind. As the airplane was turning right base to final, the right main gear and the right wing tip impacted the ground. The right engine and the two remaining landing gears separated as the airplane slid over the rough desert ground.
