Dec. 22, Port Clinton, Ohio / Cessna 182


At 10:06 EST, a Cessna 182P lost power after takeoff from Carl R. Keller Field and was damaged in the ensuing forced landing. The pilot was seriously injured. The pilot said he departed runway 27 and, as he passed the departure end at 300 to 400 feet, the engine quit. The fuel selector lever was on both. The left fuel tank gauge indicated half full, while the right tank gauge indicated zero fuel. Ice crystals were found in the fuel strainer and in fuel drained from a main fuel tank.
