Wow, it threw the tailwheel all the way forward to the nose of the airplane!

Thank goodness nobody was hurt. He was very calm on the radio talking to Gatineau as it unfolded.

"C-FMSM, un Maule (MT-7-235) en exploitation privée, effectuait un vol local selon les règles de vol à vue depuis Ottawa/Gatineau, QC (CYND) avec 1 pilote et 1 passager à bord. Alors que l’appareil se trouvait à environ 4 miles marins au nord-ouest de CYND, il a subi une panne moteur (Avco
Lycoming, IO-540-W1A5). Le pilote a déclaré un état d’urgence et a effectué un atterrissage forcé dans un champ. L’appareil a capoté et subit des dommages importants. Il n’y a eu aucun blessé. Le Centre conjoint de coordination des opérations de sauvetage a reçu le signal de l’émetteur de
localisation d'urgence."

Google Translate.....

The T in MT-7-235 denotes tricycle gear.

The only three things a wingman should ever say: 1. "Two's up" 2. "You're on fire" 3. "I'll take the fat one"

Sorry, apparently I forgot the smiley-face to make it completely obvious that I was joking.

Another Maule with an IO-540 had an engine failure this week at Langley:
