This happened a couple of weekes ago. The pilot only had 60 hours under his belt. Did a great job considering his experience. Here'es the NTSB Report: http://www.ntsb.gov/ntsb/brief.asp?ev_id=20050917X01489&key=1

From the NTSB report:

Quote
An examination of the airplane's maintenance records revealed that the airplane's engine had accrued 7,069 total hours of flight time, and had accrued 2,771 total hours since major overhaul.


TBO of 2,000 hours, even if overhaul isn't required under Part 91, going that far past TBO doesn't seem wise.

Very true, not so wise to do that.  TBO numbers are not just given "because."  They actually have meanings smiley  cheesy  Cool

The aircraft is owned and maintained by Nassau Flyers. When I checked them out five years ago for flight training, they stressed that their maintenance practices were the best on the airport. Even competitors couldn't and didn't say anything bad about them. I guess finances are tight these days.
