Cessna F150L, G-AZXC


Shortly after takeoff the engine failed and a forced landing was made in a field beyond the end of the runway. The aircraft landed heavily causing the nose gear to collapse and the aircraft flipped upside down. The engine failure was caused by excessive water in the fuel. It was not possible to determine how the water entered the fuel system but it is probable that the heavy rainfall during the week leading up to the accident flight, while the aircraft was parked outside, was a contributory factor.
