The aircraft was undergoing a check flight after a 100 hourly inspection. It had not been used for at least 10 months, nor had it been stored correctly. After a number of simulated spray runs across the aerodrome the pilot climbed to conduct an approach to land. On late downwind at 350 ft agl the engine and propeller stopped. The pilot manoeuvred the aircraft towards a clear area but the aircraft landed heavily short of the area. The reason for the engine stopping was not determined.
