On September 17, 2012, about 1007 mountain standard time, an experimental Barney Starduster airplane, N1356Y, sustained substantial damage following a loss of engine power and subsequent hard landing at the Chandler Municipal Airport, Chandler, Arizona. The private pilot, the sole occupant of the airplane, was not injured. The airplane was registered to the pilot, and operated as a visual flight rules (VFR) flight under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 91. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and no flight plan was filed for the flight that originated from Casa Grande, Arizona, about 15 minutes before the accident.
The pilot reported that the engine stopped developing power when he entered the pattern at Chandler. A forced landing ensued and the pilot landed hard in the airport infield.
Postaccident examination of the airplane by a representative of the FAA revealed structural damage to the right wing and fuselage.
