NTSB investigators may not have traveled in support of this investigation and used data provided by various sources to prepare this aircraft accident report.

Shortly after departure, as the airplane was entering its initial climb, the right engine experienced a loss of engine power and the pilot conducted a forced landing in a nearby field. An on-site inspection of the airplane revealed that the fuel tanks contained plenty of fuel and the airplane had sustained structural damage. Postaccident examinations of the airframe and engines were conducted. Both left and right engines were placed in an engine test cell and run for several minutes at various power settings. The examinations failed to identify any abnormalities that would have contributed to the loss of engine power.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:

The loss of engine power (right engine) during initial climb for undetermined reasons.
