Location:Rockport, TX -   United States of America

Departure airport:RKP
Destination airport:
Investigating agency: NTSB
Narrative:
Airport personnel heard the student pilot of the single-engine airplane declare 'Mayday' and indicate that his engine was 'out.' The airplane wreckage was located in 2-foot-deep water 9 miles from the pilot's departure airport. All of the wreckage was submerged or partially submerged in salt water. The wreckage path measured approximately 275 feet in length. Examination of the wreckage indicated that the airplane impacted the water in a nose down attitude. No discrepancies were noted during the investigation that would have prevented normal engine operation.
Probable Cause: the loss of engine power for undetermined reasons, and the pilot's subsequent failure to maintain control of the airplane during the ensuing forced landing.
