Cyclone AX2000, G-MZJR


The aircraft was flying at 600 ft agl when the engine suddenly stopped. The pilot chose a small field for a forced landing and landed downwind with a tailwind of 10 to 15 mph. The aircraft landed well into the field and the combination of a late touchdown with a high groundspeed and poor braking action on wet grass caused the aircraft to run on into a substantial wooden fence. Both the pilot and his passenger were injured in the accident.
