On February 6, 2011, about 1115 central standard time, an amateur built Zenith STOL CH750, N904MS, experienced a separation of the propeller during flight near Cassville, Missouri. The pilot executed a forced landing to a snow covered field and the nose landing gear collapsed resulting in minor damage. The pilot and passenger were not injured. The airplane was owned and operated by a private pilot under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a personal flight. Visual flight rules (VFR) conditions prevailed and no flight plan was filed. The local flight originated from the Cassville Municipal Airport, Cassville, Missouri, about 1105.
The separated propeller was found subsequent to the event. The propeller attached to a propeller hub/extension, which was in turn attached to the engine crankshaft. The hub/extension remained attached to the propeller and was separated from the crankshaft. The hub/extension was retained on the engine's crankshaft by 6 bolts which had failed. The recovered pieces included the hub/extension, and the failed bolts.
