Narrative:
A privately registered Cessna 340A aircraft, was conducting an approach at Ponoka Industrial (Labrie Field) (CEH3), AB with only the pilot on board. The pilot missed the first approach due to autopilot malfunction issues, and decided to do a forced landing during the go-around due to the autopilot that would not disconnect as needed. As the forced landing in a field was executed, the aircraft struck a tree during the slide. The aircraft was substantially damaged, and the pilot walked away with a serious injury.
