Narrative:
Aircraft experienced "rough running" of engine during initial climb out from White Waltham airfield, near Maidenhead, Berkshire. Fearing immediate engine failure, the pilot decided to make an immediate return to the airfield.

During the landing, the Cessna "bounced" twice due to a missed approach, and touched down too far down the runway. The pilot then opened the throttles to climb away, intending to make a further circuit and attempt the landing again.

However, he climbed too steeply, and the aircraft stalled, clipped a hedge, and landed in a field just beyond the airfield boundary, upright, but badly damaged.

The Cessna was damaged beyond repair, and later considered to be an insurance write off. Formally cancelled from the UK civil register by the CAA on 3/6/1992 (two years later) as "destroyed" and "addressee gone away"
