NTSB Narrative Summary Released at Completion of Accident
During the takeoff climb, the engine lost power, and the pilot attempted to land the airplane on the remaining runway. The airplane touched down hard and bounced. During the landing roll, the pilot applied 'maximum braking,' however, the airplane exited the departure end of the runway. The nose landing gear sank in the soft mud and collapsed. Subsequently, the airplane came to rest on its nose. During a post-accident examination of the engine, no anomalies were noted that would have prevented its operation.
NTSB Probable Cause Narrative
The loss of engine power for reasons undetermined. A factor was the lack of suitable terrain for the forced landing.
