Piper PA-28R-180 Cherokee Arrow, G-AVWN
Whilst in the cruise at Flight level (FL) 55, the engine lost power and a forced landing in a field was required. A late sighting of power lines in the chosen field required a rapid change to a field which was traversed by drainage ditches. The aircraft struck one of these, incurring major damage.
