Cessna F177RG Cardinal RG, G-LNYS
The aircraft suffered a loss of power in flight. During the subsequent forced landing the pilot decided that his initial choice of field was unsuitable, so he landed in an adjacent small field. The aircraft was unable to stop within the distance available and entered some trees at the far end. It was extensively damaged and the pilot received a minor injury. His passenger was uninjured and there was no fire.
