Narrative:The airline transport pilot reported that, about 30 minutes after departure for the cross-country personal flight in visual conditions, he noticed a vibration. He checked the engine instruments and did not see anything abnormal. However, he noted that the airplane’s airspeed and altitude were rapidly decreasing, so he applied full power to both engines, but the airplane continued to descend, indicative of a partial loss of engine power, so he chose to conduct a forced, off-airport landing in a field. The airplane impacted terrain and then came to rest after impacting a ditch.
