Aviation Accident Preliminary Report - National Transportation Safety Board:

Location: Wagoner, OK
Accident Number: ERA19LA006
Date & Time: 10/04/2018, 1830 CDT
Registration: N8495Z
Aircraft: Cessna 205
Injuries: 1 Minor
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Flight Test 

On October 4, 2018, about 1830 central daylight time, a Cessna 205A, N8495Z, sustained substantial damage when it collided with trees after a total loss of engine power about 8 miles south of the Hefner-Easley Airport (H68), Wagoner, Oklahoma. The private pilot sustained minor injuries. The airplane was operated by the private pilot as a personal flight conducted under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan was filed for the post-maintenance flight test.

According to the pilot, he was performing a post-maintenance flight after the airplane's annual inspection. After a routine engine run-up, with no abnormal indications he departed H68. The pilot climbed to 2,500 ft and made three circuits around the airport; he stated the airplane climbed well and all flight parameters were normal. The pilot announced his intentions of leaving the airport area and turned south to continue flight maneuvers and performance checks. During the maintenance checks, the pilot started a left turn towards the east when a very minor "engine misfire" caught his attention. He scanned the instrument panel and all engine parameters appeared normal. As the pilot continued the turn, the "engine misfire" began to increase and the engine began to shake. The airplane was unable to maintain altitude and was descending about 150-300 feet per minute. After multiple attempts to regain engine power the engine "quit." The pilot slowed the airplane to minimum controllable airspeed and impacted trees and brush. The pilot exited the airplane and waited for emergency services.

During the landing sequence, the left and right wing were buckled. The airplane was recovered and retained for further examination.

An unidentified man appears to have escaped serious injuries after a single-engine Cessna he was piloting crashed near a cemetery east of Wagoner.

Sgt. Jeff Halfacre, a spokesman for the Wagoner County Sheriff's Office, said dispatchers received a call at 6:59 p.m. Thursday from a motorist who spotted the airplane about a half-mile west of 300 Road along Oklahoma 51. The pilot, he said, was transported to a "local area hospital," where he is believed to have been treated for a head laceration.

"I am not sure about what actually caused it, but it appeared that he probably tried to avoid the highway because of traffic," Halfacre said, noting the pilot's condition reportedly was stable. "It appears to be a minor plane crash -- I don't think his injuries would be considered critical, but he was transported out of precaution and checked out thoroughly."

Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers reportedly contacted the Federal Aviation Administration, which Halfacre said was "not going to respond out here." He said the crash site was taped off, and owners of the airplane planned to retrieve it Friday morning.

"Our dispatchers have been notified," Halfacre said. "If they are contacted, they will let the passersby know to disregard it."
