Aircraft Accident/Incident Report

Addison, Texas 75001
Friday, March 31, 2000 10:11 CST

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.
