Narrative:
On September 11, 1995, at 0730 Pacific daylight time, a Beech 23, N2382J, collided with the ground off the departure end of runway 7 following a loss of power during the takeoff initial climb at the North Las Vegas Airport, Las Vegas, Nevada. The aircraft was operated by the pilot and was on a local area personal flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed at the time and no flight plan was filed. The aircraft was destroyed in the ground collision sequence. The certificated commercial pilot and one passenger were not injured. The flight originated at the North Las Vegas Airport on the day of the accident at 0625.

The pilot reported that he was doing touch-and-go traffic pattern operations on runway 7. During the takeoff initial climb from the last touch-and-go, the engine lost power and the pilot landed the aircraft in a vacant field off the departure end of the runway. The field consisted of soft, rough soil and sage brush, and the landing gear collapsed during the ground roll.

An FAA airworthiness inspector from the Las Vegas, Nevada, Flight Standards District Office examined the aircraft. He reported that no discrepancies were identified in either the airframe or engine.
PROBABLE CAUSE:the loss of engine power for undetermined reasons. The soft and rough nature of the terrain available for the forced landing was a factor in the accident.
