It was a SID that came out about 10 years ago.

New inspection requirement could ground Cessna 441 Conquest IIs

I'm not saying this had anything to do with this accident. There are a number of factors that can lead to an aircraft coming apart in-flight.

The 441 -- or all the twin Cessna for that matter -- are solid aircraft. As they get older, the maintenance costs increase and that stuff HAS to be done and they have to be treated right. You baby those geared engines on the 421, and they'll run like a champ. You abuse them, and you'll be replacing jugs and whole engines on a regular basis.

It's karma. You take care of your aircraft and it'll take care of you.

If Cessna had only built those twins the way Douglas built their C-47... ... I guess there is something to Karma after all. Douglas apparently lived a very good past life.
