Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The pilot maneuvered to make an off-airport landing due to a loss of engine power. During the turn to land the airplane's wing dropped, the airplane stalled and spun into the ground. There were no radio communications from the accident pilot indicating that he had a problem. During the on-scene inspection the FAA did not observe fuel or smell evidence of fuel on the ground or around the airplane. There were no discrepancies noted with the engine.
Probable Cause: Loss of engine power for unknown reasons. A factor was the inadvertent stall the pilot encountered while maneuvering to make a forced landing in an open taro field.
