On May 22, 1994, about 1330 eastern standard time, a Cessna 150K, N6039G, sustained substantial damage when it nosed-over following a forced landing in a corn field near Jasonville, Indiana. The pilot reported a loss of engine power shortly after takeoff from the Shakamak Airport, which is next to the corn field. The commercial pilot was not injured. No flight plan was filed for the personal flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed at the time of the mishap.

The pilot stated in a telephone interview the fuel gauges indicated one-fourth of a tank of fuel when he did the preflight inspection. The airplane was parked with the nose pointing down a slope of about 7 degrees. The Federal Aviation Administration Inspector who examined the airplane reported there was no fuel in either tank.
