Narrative:
Whilst cruising at approximately 2,000 feet the pilot noticed a slight engine vibration which, within a few seconds, worsened and the engine lost power. A backfire was heard and the pilot saw smoke
coming from the carburettor air intake. The vibration increased when the throttle was opened. The pilot checked both the magnetos and fuel supply, with no anomalies noted, before conducting a forced landing into wind. During the landing roll, however, the aircraft tipped onto its nose coming to rest on the propeller and left wing tip. The pilot, who was uninjured, was able to climb out of the open cockpit. There was no fire.
