A Japan Coast Guard Cessna 172S Turbo Skyhawk JT-A crash landed in a field in Usa City, Oita Prefecture due to engine failure, and flipped over. The flight crew, a trainee and a instructor, told to ATC about the power loss of the engine, and squawked 7700 just before the crash.
Both occupants were slightly injured and the aircraft received substantial damage.
Japan Civil Aviation Bureau initially identified the occurrence as a serious incident, however, changed to an accident later since heavy damages on the lower aft fuselage were realized. JTSB launched an investigation.
