NTSB Prelim: Morgan John B Kolb Firestar II

During The Forced Landing, About 15 Ft Above The Ground, The Pilot Stalled The Airplane

Location: Enumclaw, WA Accident Number: WPR23LA166
Date & Time: April 24, 2023, 19:14 Local Registration: N454K
Aircraft: Morgan John B Kolb Firestar II Injuries: 1 Minor
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General aviation - Personal

On April 24, 2023, about 1914 Pacific daylight time, an experimental amateur-built Kolb Firestar II airplane, N454K, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Enumclaw, Washington. The pilot sustained minor injuries.

The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 91 personal flight.

The pilot reported that shortly after takeoff, the engine lost power and he therefore initiated a forced landing to an open field. During the forced landing, about 15 ft above the ground, the pilot stalled the airplane.

Subsequently, the left wing struck terrain and separated from the fuselage and the airplane came to rest in a muddy area of the field.

The airplane was recovered to a secure facility for future examination.
