On January 28, 2022, about 1425 mountain standard time, a Textron Aviation T240 airplane, N420WT, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Ravendale, California.

During the accident flight they did a goaround during the approach at Ravendale Airport (O39), Ravendale, California, followed by an uneventful landing. They taxied back for takeoff on runway 17 and had planned to do a short field takeoff. The pilot reported that both wing tanks contained about 20 gallons per side and that he departed with the right tank selected. At about 100 ft above ground level, nearing the end of the runway, they experienced a sudden loss of engine power. The pilot lowered the nose and extended the flaps for the off-airport forced landing. The airplane touched down on snow covered terrain, impacting brush as it came to rest after about 80 ft of sliding. The pilots and passenger egressed the airplane. During the recovery process, structural damage was noted to the fuselage.
