Jodel D117A, G-ASXY
Following a partial engine failure the commander carried out a forced landing. The aircraft subsequently overshot the selected field, clipped the top of some trees and its left wing struck a power cable suspended on a line of telegraph poles. On striking the cable the aircraft rotated about its left wing and struck the ground, inverted. The commander was fatally injured and the co-pilot suffered serious injuries. The cable was obscured by the trees.
