On rebuild


A08C0172: The de Havilland DHC-2 MK1, registration C-FNOT was en route to La Ronge, Saskatchewan with the pilot and one passenger on board. While in cruise at approximately 4,000 feet, the engine (P&W R-985) began to run rough and lose power. The aircraft was unable to maintain flight and the pilot elected to force-land the aircraft in a wooded area. At approximately 200 feet AGL the engine lost all power. The aircraft came to a rest in an upright position and the pilot and passenger deplaned without injury. The aircraft was substantially damaged. 95nm SE of La Ronge. The pilot called base via satellite phone to advise of the situation. The pilot and passenger were then picked up by helicopter.
