Narrative:
On August 27, 2020, about 1245 eastern daylight time, a Cessna 172P airplane, N65645, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Weston, Florida. The flight instructor and pilot receiving instruction were not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 instructional flight.
According to the flight instructor, after practicing holding maneuvers over the Everglades, he noticed that the engine oil pressure was "remarkably low" and the engine oil temperature was "a bit high." He took control of the airplane and flew east toward roadways in the event a forced landing became necessary. The engine then began to run rough, vibrate, and lost partial power. He determined the airplane would likely not reach the roadways and turned toward the Dade Collier Airport (TNT), Ochoppee, Florida, which was about 12 miles away. The engine then vibrated "incredibly" and lost all power. The flight instructor was unable to restart the engine and performed a forced landing into vegetation. During landing, the airplane flipped over and sustained substantial damage to the wings and forward lower fuselage.
Examination of the airplane by an Federal Aviation Administration inspector revealed that a coating of oil was present on most of the underside of the fuselage, and a hole was found in the engine crankcase near the base of one of the cylinders.
The airplane was retained for further examination.
