Summary:

The engine lost power and its rpm dropped to a low idling speed as the aircraft climbed through 900 ft after takeoff. The pilot confirmed the engine controls were correctly selected and declared a MAYDAY. During the subsequent forced landing, the aircraft struck bushes at the end of the landing roll causing damage to its propeller, lower wings, elevator and rudder. The pilot was uninjured. The aircraft was later recovered to White Waltham Airfield where, at the time of writing, it was awaiting investigation of the power loss. If the results of this investigation reveal any significant safety information, an addendum to this report will be published.
