Morane Saulnier MS.894A Rallye Minerva, G-HHAV

Summary:

Following a touch-and-go at Perranporth Airfield, the aircraft suffered a sudden power loss whilst climbing through 400 ft agl. The pilot executed a forced landing in a field during which the aircraft’s wings, engine mount, nose landing gear and propeller were damaged. Subsequent engineering examination of the aircraft did not positively identify the reason for the engine failure although an electrical fault was identified in the left magneto primary lead that was sufficient to prevent the left magneto from functioning.
