2001-10-09: UPDATE TSB reported that during the initial climb out, after take off from Runway 16 at Villeneuve (CZVL), the Teledyne Continental W-670-6A engine (Serial No. 17696) in the Boeing 75N1 sputtered and lost power. The pilot landed straight ahead in a soft field, one quarter mile south of the departure end of Runway 16, and the aircraft turned over onto its back. There were no injuries to the pilot who was wearing a helmet and shoulder harness. The cause of the power loss is unknown.
2001-11-21: UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that the aircraft's fuel system has been gone over and nothing appeared to be wrong. The owner said that carb icing did not appear to be the problem, due to the weather conditions at the time. A possible blocked fuel vent line might have been a factor, as they are quite small on that aircraft, but could not be confirmed after the accident. The engine is approximately 100 hours from overhaul, so the owners have decided to have it overhauled over the winter. M. & M. has requested an SDR if they find anything that might have contributed to the occurrence.
