On January 6, 2015, about 1545 Central Standard Time, a Cessna 195B, N2125C, lost engine power during the takeoff roll from Llano Municipal Airport, Llano (KAQO), Texas. The nose pitched forward and the propeller struck the runway and nosed over. The pilot and his passenger were not injured, but the airplane was substantially damaged. The airplane was registered to and operated by the pilot under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a personal flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed at the time of the accident, and no flight plan had been filed. The cross-country flight was originating at the time of the accident.

According to the pilot's accident report, right at liftoff the engine went from full power to idle power and the pilot thought the engine had quit.

Federal Aviation Administration inspectors went to the accident site and reported finding numerous propeller strike marks in the runway pavement. They also documented tire tracks and propeller strikes going off the right side of the runway and into the dirt and terminating at the inverted airplane.
