In failing light, the pilot decided to make a precautionary landing at a nearby disused aerodrome. Before reaching it however, the engine began to misfire and finally stopped, and a forced landing was made in a field. The aircraft touched down heavily causing the undercarriage to collapse and the engine to break away from the fuselage. The pilot sustained only minor injury.
