The pilot was spraying a rice field making a low pass when the engine suddenly lost power. The pilot made a forced landing to a flooded corn field and the airplane sustained damage to the outboard sections of the left and right wings. A postaccident examination of the engine, fuel filters, high pressure fuel pump, fuel control unit, and propeller governor revealed no preimpact anomalies that would have resulted in a loss of engine power. Approximately 30 gallons of fuel was drained from both fuel tanks. The loss of engine power could not be determined.

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

A loss of engine power for undetermined reasons.
