At about 1135 mountain time, a Cessna T210K was substantially damaged during a forced landing near Deming, N.M. The pilot was not injured. The flight originated from Oakland, Calif., at 0630, bound for Deming. The pilot reduced engine power to idle and lowered his gear and flaps in order to descend steeply from 17,000 feet msl to the airport elevation of 4,313 feet msl. The pilot advanced the throttle as he approached the airport but the engine did not respond. The airplane impacted terrain during the subsequent forced landing in a field short of the airport.
