The pilot tried to come back at the airport and crashed near the runway.

Shouldn't make a difference. If it burns, a turboprop will run. JetA in a piston is where the problems are.

It's the first fatal accident involving CRL if I'm not mistaken

I flew in a centurion 10 years ago as a passenger. A few months later, it crashed killing all aboard close to Bordeaux killing all aboard except one I think. I kind of remember this plane has had more than its share of trouble. Is that just an impression?

I remember during my early flying lessons, unannounced my instructor shut the throttle on our Cessna 152 at 1000feet just after take off, and asked me "Now what?". I think I panicked, and he took over control. But then he underlined in my mind - never try to do a 180 and land back, with no engine, it's not possible. Nose down, look ahead, choose a field, and make your normal landing preparations!
Turn back with no power is just not on!
