The pilot was maneuvering the airplane about 600 feet above ground level during an airshow. The engine lost power, the pilot attempted a forced landing in a corn field, and the airplane flipped over. The pilot reported that he completed the engine power-loss checks after the engine lost power. After recovery of the wreckage, impact-related engine damage was repaired and the engine was reinstalled on the airframe. Two test runs were completed, and the engine ran normally during both runs. The airplane was being operated in conditions conducive to serious carburetor icing at glide power at the time of the accident.
