BAC 167 Strikemaster Mk 80, G-UPPI


An instructor was carrying out a training flight with his student. This was the second flight of the day and as part of the sortie the aircraft was rolled inverted for approximately five seconds which was within the permitted negative g time limitation. Shortly after the aircraft was rolled to the normal wings level attitude, the engine flamed out and despite two attempts at a relight, it remained shut down. A forced landing was made in a field and the aircraft struck a substantial earth bank at the upwind end of the field, severely damaging the aircraft.
