Phase: Landing
Departure airport:Belfast-Nutts Corner Airport
Destination airport:Belfast-Nutts Corner Airport
Approximately two hours after taking off from Belfast (Nutts Corner) for a cross country flight, in conditions of good visibility, the pilot became lost. After some considerable time the position of the aircraft was established, but by this time there was insufficient fuel remaining for the flight back to the aerodrome of departure.
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.
