2016 Acampo C-208 Caravan CA Engine Failure Non-Fatal Single-Engine

C-208 Caravan Non-Fatal Acampo, CA May 12, 2016

The commercial pilot reported that, after takeoff on the local skydiving flight, the engine experienced a
total loss of power. He initiated a turn toward the airport, but realized the airplane would not reach the
runway and chose to perform a forced landing to an open field. During the landing roll, the airplane
exited the field, crossed a road, impacted a truck, and continued into a vineyard, where it nosed over.
