Location: Brenham, TX
Accident Number: WPR18LA271
Date & Time: 09/20/2018, 1522 CDT
Registration: N756NN

Injuries: 2 None
Flight Conducted Under: Public Aircraft 

On September 20, 2018, about 1522 central daylight time, a Cessna TU206G, N756NN, sustained substantial damage during a forced landing just short of Brenham Municipal Airport (11R), Brenham, Texas. The airline transport pilot and passenger were not injured. The airplane was registered to and operated by The United States Department of Agriculture as a public aircraft flight. The cross-country aerial observation flight departed San Angelo Regional Airport/Mathis Field (KSJT), San Angelo, Texas, about 1040 with a planned destination of Brenham. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan had been filed.

After completing a series of photographic assignments in the Central and North Texas areas, the pilot determined there would still be enough fuel remaining to return to base in San Angelo. After circumventing rain showers, he began the landing approach to runway 16, and having reached a 5-mile-final, the engine began to lose power. He switched the fuel selector valve to another tank, however the engine did not respond, and a short time later all power was lost. With limited altitude available to troubleshoot, he maneuvered the airplane for a forced landing into a field. The airplane struck a tree and fence during the approach, damaging the left wing.
