According to the pilot, the purpose of the flight was to practice flight maneuvers for an upcoming checkride. Prior to takeoff, the pilot fueled the airplane and performed a preflight inspection with no anomalies noted. After practicing the flight maneuvers, the pilot flew the airplane back to the airport in order to practice touch-and-go landings. During the takeoff portion of the first touch-and-go maneuver, the engine lost power about 100 to 150 feet above ground level. The pilot initiated a left turn to land in a nearby field, but he realized that the airplane was too low so he performed a forced landing between hangars; the airplane collided with powerlines and a building. A postaccident examination revealed adequate fuel on board. An engine test run was performed and the engine operated satisfactorily with no anomalies noted. The reason for the loss of engine power could not be determined.
Probable Cause: A loss of engine power during takeoff for reasons that could not be determined because postaccident examination and testing did not reveal any anomalies that would have precluded normal operation.
