CHI07CA196

The airplane was substantially damaged when it impacted terrain following a loss of engine power. The pilot stated that she was on a midfield downwind for approach to runway 9 (8,601 feet by 150 feet, asphalt/concrete) when the engine coughed, sputtered twice, and quit. The pilot reported that she adjusted the fuel selector, the throttle, and the mixture controls in an attempt to regain engine power. The pilot determined that it wasn't possible to land on the airport and chose to land in a soybean field. The plane subsequently impacted the soybean field and came to rest upside down. An examination of the wreckage revealed no mechanical anomalies with the airplane.
