Beschrijving:
The engine lost oil pressure while climbing through 6,000 feet, after departure from Fresno (FCH). The pilot requested to return to his departure airport but ATC informed the pilot of a closer airport. The pilot secured the engine, feathered the prop, and made a power-off descent to the airport. The pilot elected to make a downwind approach to runway 12L due to his altitude. The airplane over flew the runway and touched down past the departure end. It penetrated the airport perimeter fence, struck several trees, a sign post, a light pole, and an auto before coming to rest in a residential area.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "A loss of engine oil pressure due to improper maintenance performed on the engine oil filler cap by an unknown person. In addition, the pilot misjudged his landing approach to the runway during the forced landing which resulted in an overshoot and collision with objects. a tailwind contributed to the overshoot. "
