Piper PA-22-160 Super Pacer, G-BTLM


The engine did not respond to the pilot’s application of full throttle when he attempted fly a go-around from final approach. In an attempt to recover engine power he pumped the throttle, but this caused the engine to stop. A forced landing was conducted in a field during which the right wing stuck a small tree. The pilot vacated the aircraft via the rear door (on the left side of the aircraft) as the damaged right wing was blocking the front door, which is on the right side.
