During the initial climb, following a takeoff from Runway 23, the aircraft’s engine lost power. The pilot carried out a forced landing into a field but the ground conditions were rough and the aircraft’s landing gear collapsed on touchdown. The two occupants both suffered some minor injuries but were able to vacate the aircraft unassisted.
