Incident at Miska Lake, ONT


1997-09-23: When power was applied during the landing approach, there was no response from the engine (P&W R1340). The aircraft landed hard on the water and bounced back into the air. This time when power was applied, the engine responded and the aircraft climbed out. The pilot and passenger decided to fly back to Geraldton to have the aircraft inspected. Slight buckling of the fuselage in the vicinity of the forward cabin bulkhead was noted. Carb ice is suspected as the cause of the temporary loss of engine power. From a TSB Initial Notification.
