NTSB Prelim: Luscombe 8A

About 200 To 300 Ft Above Ground Level, The Engine Began Operating Rough

Location: Fort Wayne, IN Accident Number: CEN21LA400
Date & Time: September 4, 2021, 14:30 Local Registration: N2071K
Aircraft: Luscombe 8A Injuries: 1 Minor
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General aviation - Personal

On September 4, 2021, about 1430 eastern daylight time, a Luscombe 8A airplane, N2071K, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Fort Wayne, Indiana. The pilot sustained minor injuries. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

According to the pilot, he and 3 other airplanes were conducting a cross-country return flight to Pennsylvania. After refueling, the airplanes taxied to runway 23, and the pilot completed his preflight checklist. Shortly after takeoff, about 200 to 300 ft above ground level, the engine began operating rough, which included some surging, and then it lost power. The pilot attempted to land on runway 5, which resulted in a landing with a 9 to 12 knot tail wind. Due to the tailwind, the airplane touched down near the end of runway 5. Realizing the airplane would not stop before the end of the runway, the pilot turned the airplane to the right and exited the runway surface. The airplane entered a soybean field and nosed over. The airplane sustained substantial damage to the fuselage and vertical stabilizer.

The airplane was recovered for further examination.
