2005-07-18: TSB Update A05A0081: Shortly after takeoff the engine (Lycoming 0290 D2) on the Starduster aircraft started to run rough, and eventually stopped. A forced landing attempt was made on small dirt road approximately 10km west of the airport. The aircraft landed on the road but a wingtip caught on vegetation and the aircraft was forced off the road. The aircraft nosed over and went end-over-end, breaking the fuselage behind the cockpit. The pilot, who was using a five point harness, was not injured. He was also protected by the strength of the overhead wing structure. The pilot will be examining the engine, and will report the cause of the power loss if found.
