Whilst in the cruise at 1,000 ft, the engine suddenly stopped. Following a series of engine restarts and subsequent stoppages, the pilot carried out a forced landing into a grass field. During the rollout, the aircraft’s nosewheel dug into soft ground. The aircraft tipped forward and came to rest upside down. The pilot and passenger were uninjured and vacated the aircraft unaided. The cause of the engine failure was not identified.
