Beschrijving:
On April 23, 2001 Caravan N974FE was returned to service after a 100-hour maintenance inspection. The airplane had accrued 5 hours of flight time since that date when it departed from Plattsburgh (PLB) on April 26. During the climb after takeoff, approximately 1,000 to 1,500 feet above the ground, the airplane's engine spooled down smoothly and gradually. The pilot was not able to restore power. A forced landing was made, during which the Caravan nosed over.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The incorrect installation of the propeller reversing lever and carbon block assembly, which resulted in a loss of propeller thrust."
