Socata TB10 Tobago, G-JURE
Whilst in the approach phase of a night currency flight, the aircraft suffered a sustained loss of engine power that required the pilot to make a forced landing. In the darkness, the pilot was unable to locate a clear area in which to land and the aircraft flew into a tree, where it came to rest. Shortly afterwards the aircraft caught fire and the pilot, unable to open the aircraft’s door, vacated the aircraft through a perspex window. He fell to the ground and was taken to hospital with serious burn injuries.
