NTSB Factual Report

On May 3, 2005, about 1200 Pacific daylight time, a Johnson Johnson Chris-Tena amateur built experimental airplane, N72JJ, sustained substantial damage during a forced landing following a loss of engine power on takeoff at the Lebanon State Airport, Lebanon, Oregon. The commercial pilot, the sole occupant, was not injured. The airplane was registered to and operated by the pilot. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and no flight plan was filed for the 14 CFR Part 91 local personal flight. The flight was originating when the accident occurred.

According to the pilot, during takeoff from runway 16, the airplane's Volkswagen engine lost power. During the ensuing forced landing on a road, the airplane struck a vehicle. The fuselage and wings of the airplane sustained structural damage.

NTSB Probable Cause

The loss of engine power on takeoff for an undetermined reason. A contributing factor was the lack of suitable terrain for the forced landing.
