The pilot stated that during climb, after takeoff, the airplane suffered an excessive loss of power and he was unable to maintain flight. He then elected to conduct a forced landing on a road with the landing gear retracted. During the landing, the airplane drifted to the right and the right wing impacted trees.
A post-accident examination by an Federal Aviation Administration inspector found that a hole was present in the upper engine deck pressure line (TCM P/N 630863), where the line was chaffed by a stainless steel ring on a rubber oil line. A detailed breakdown from the TCM parts list is attached, as an addendum to this report, for identification of the part.
