On June 1, 2017, at 1830 eastern daylight time, an amateur built Lancair IV-P airplane, N366TF, lost engine power and was forced landed at the Oswego County Airport (FZY), Fulton, New York. The pilot and flight instructor were not injured and the airplane sustained minor damage. The airplane was registered to and operated by MS Rochelle LLC under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a personal flight. Day visual meteorological conditions prevailed for the local flight, which departed from FZY at 1819.

The purpose of the flight was to calibrate an angle of attack indicator, which required a series of zero G maneuvers. During the first maneuver, the flight instructor and pilot noticed the engine overspeed, as well as a noticeable "bang". Following a total loss of power, a forced landing was performed at FZY without further incident. Post flight examination revealed engine damage which included two fractured connecting rods. The engine was retained for follow on examination
