Default Engine failure on takeoff


If you look at report #6, this happened just recently near me. Seems the
pilot had engine failure during take off and attempted to make it back to
the runway. He didn't make. He didn't miss by far, only shy about
100-yards, or so the news print article I read stated. His plane hung in
the trees for a couple of days while it was being investigated. Both the
pilot and passenger walked away.

The airport is right on the lake. In fact, water and trees fairly well
surrounds three sides of the runway and might explain why he thought the
runway was his best bet.
