Nord 102 Pingouin II, G-ATBG

Summary:

The pilot was forced to land the aircraft in a field after the engine failed to respond when he attempted a go-around manoeuvre. This was as a result of another aircraft turning on to final approach ahead of him, leaving insufficient separation for him to continue. The pilot was uninjured and the aircraft sustained minor damage. The weather conditions were conducive to serious carburettor icing at descent power settings.
