NTSB Prelim: Bender Thomas G RV-6

During The Forced Landing... The Airplane Exited The Runway And The Landing Gear Collapsed

Location: Moriarty, NM Accident Number: WPR24LA063
Date & Time: January 2, 2024, 10:30 Local Registration: N111XF
Aircraft: Bender Thomas G RV-6 Injuries: 1 Minor
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General aviation - Personal

On January 2, 2024, at 1030 mountain standard time, an experimental amateur-built Vans RV-6, N111XF, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Moriarty, New Mexico. The pilot received minor injuries. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

The pilot reported that the airplane was operating normally through preflight and initial takeoff. Shortly after becoming airborne, and still over the runway, the engine began to “stutter” and lose power. The pilot turned on the electric fuel pump, but the engine did not respond. During the forced landing that followed, the airplane exited the runway and the landing gear collapsed, substantially damaging the fuselage.

The airplane was retained for further examination.
