Investigating agency: NTSB
The commercial pilot reported that he was conducting a solo practice flight in the piston-engine agricultural airplane. After takeoff and just as he started to turn the airplane from the upwind to the crosswind leg of the traffic pattern, the engine experienced a partial loss of power. The pilot initiated an offairport landing to a field. During the landing roll, the main wheels hit a berm, which resulted in the left main landing gear separating from the airframe. The left wing then struck the ground, which resulted in substantial damage to the wing assembly. A postaccident examination of the airframe and engine revealed no evidence of mechanical malfunctions or failures that would have precluded normal operation.
Probable Cause: The loss of engine power during takeoff for reasons that could not be determined because postaccident examination of the airframe and engine did not reveal any anomalies that would have precluded normal operation.
