Zenair CH 601HDS Zodiac, G-CEZV

Summary:

The aircraft’s cockpit canopy became unlatched during climb-out after takeoff. The resulting high drag of the partially-open canopy meant the pilot had to perform a forced landing on a disused runway. The landing was heavy and a fire developed in the engine compartment which destroyed the aircraft.
