Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
During a visual approach, as the airplane was turned onto the base leg, the engine stagnated as the pilot attempted to add power. Unable to increase engine power, the pilot force landed in an open farm field. Just before touchdown, he ejected from the airplane. He was seriously injured when seat-man separation was not achieved. Maintenance records were not available for the engine. While the reason for the engine's failure to accelerate was not determined, an analysis of fuel from the airplane revealed there was significant particulate contamination in the fuel.
Probable Cause: A loss of engine power for undetermined reasons. A factor was the particulate contamination in the fuel.


FAA register: 6.
