Incident at 10 NM NW of CALGARY / SPRINGBANK AB (CYBW) (Propeller/rotor strike, Forced landing, Engine failure)


2005-06-22: UPDATE TSB reported that the Sukhoi SU-26MX, N3472J, was engaged in aerobatics about 10 NM northwest of the Springbank, AB airport, (CYBW) when the engine (Vedenegyev M14PF) lost power. The aircraft was successfully force-landed in a field, with damage limited to the wooden propeller blades. There were no injuries to the pilot who was picked up by a military helicopter operating in the area. The pilot suspects that the power loss was due to carburetor ice, since atmospheric conditions were conducive to its formation.
