At a height of approximately 700 feet above ground level, the engine stopped for a second time during the flight. The pilot carried out a forced landing, but as the aircraft approached the selected field, it clipped the top of a row of trees, causing the aircraft to pitch over and crash-land, coming to rest inverted just beyond the trees. The aircraft was extensively damaged but, due to his harness and local strengthening of the aircraft’s structure, the pilot sustained only minor injuries. The weather at the time of the flight was such that there was a serious risk carburettor icing at any power setting.
