On June 21, 2013, about 0631 eastern daylight time, a Beechcraft Bonanza G-36; N7513, registered to and operated by a private individual, collided with power lines after takeoff from Pompano Beach Airpark (PMP), Pompano Beach, Florida. The airplane sustained substantial damage and the private pilot received minor injuries. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and no flight plan was filed for the Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 91, personal flight. The flight was destined for Tampa International Airport (TPA), Tampa, Florida.

According to the pilot, he departed from runway 33 and rotated the airplane between 60 and 70 knots utilizing zero degrees of flaps. After selecting the gear handle to the "UP" position, he reported that the "green lights" did not extinguish after about 3 seconds. The pilot recycled the gear handle to the "DOWN" position and then back to the "UP" position. The pilot further reported that the green lights then extinguished but the airplane was struggling to gain airspeed. The pilot added that the airplane could not accelerate past 60 knots prior to impacting the power lines.

Initial examination of the airplane by Federal Aviation Administration inspectors revealed that the crash site was located about 2,200 feet from the departure end of runway 33 perpendicular to a residential alley way. The airplane sustained substantial damage to the fuselage, both wings, and empennage.
