N93E ZVI LLC., Anchorage, AK. Regd 21-Jul-2014.

Accident: Lake Hood Airport, Anchorage, AK. 31-Aug-2014. At about 18:00 Alaska daylight time, the aircraft was substantially damaged during a collision with trees and terrain following a loss of engine power during the initial climb after takeoff from Lake Hood Strip, Anchorage, Alaska. Of the four people on board, one passenger received minor injuries and the private pilot and two additional passengers were not injured. The flight was being operated as a visual flight rules (VFR) personal flight under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 when the accident occurred. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and no flight plan was filed for the flight destined for a hunting camp approximately 30 miles west of Anchorage. During a conversation with the National Transportation Safety Board investigator-in-charge following the accident, the pilot stated he was making a second trip to camp that day when the engine lost power immediately after takeoff. He unsuccessfully attempted to restart the engine and made a forced landing in an area of densely populated spruce trees. During the forced landing the airplane sustained substantial damage to the fuselage, wings, and horizontal stabilizer.

Note: Aircraft repaired and modified with Alaska door 2016 / 2017.
