Narrative:
The pilot, in coordination with the head of maintenance, wanted to perform an engine test of the Cessna T188C Ag Husky. The pilot checked the airplane, after having been also checked by the mechanics, started and warmed up the engine and then performed the test this on the hangar apron.
The engine test completed, with some minor discrepancy solved by maintenance, was successful and the pilot decided to take off to the south with wind calm for a short flight (an aerodrome circuit).
On the initial ascent and approximately 150 feet off the ground the pilot noticed a sharp decrease in engine power and rev drop. He lowered the nose to maintain the speed, checked the position of the engine levers and chose as terrain for the emergency landing: terrain sown with rice and flooded in front of the runway.
The aircraft force-landed with the right wing slightly down. The pilot noticed the appearance and presence of fire and flames on the right side of the cockpit as soon as he stopped. He quickly managed to leave the plane on his left and after four or five steps when he looked back he saw the aircraft already engulfed in flames.
The pilot was unharmed but with some contusions in his right hand and his left hand. The aircraft suffered significant damage from the impact and subsequent fire.
