Aircraft clipped a tree, narrowly missing power lines and made a forced landing in a field at Staverton after the engine failed shortly after take-off from the Gloucestershire airport. The port undercarriage punched through the wing, the other undercarriage was torn off. Probably written off (damaged beyond economic repair) due to its construction. The pilot was uninjured, but the passenger suffered a broken vertebra.
