On August 14, 2018, about 1030 mountain daylight time, a Cessna 140 airplane, N89093, was substantially damaged when it impacted the waters of the Snake River during a forced landing following a loss of engine power near the Sunrise Skypark Airport (ID40), Marsing, Idaho. The private pilot and passenger were not injured. The airplane was registered and operated by the pilot under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a personal flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and a flight plan was not filed for the local flight which originated from Nampa, Idaho, about 0930.

The pilot reported that after entering the airport traffic pattern, he reduced engine power and conducted a low pass over runway 12. As the airplane approached mid-field, he advanced the throttle while in a level attitude, but the engine did not respond. The pilot stated that he then switched fuel tanks and initiated a forced landing to the shallow side of the Snake River, which paralleled the runway. During the landing, the airplane impacted water and came to rest upright partially submerged in the river.

The airplane was recovered to a secure location for further examination.
