A partial power loss due to a Jabiru 2200 engine failure forced me to land my Alpi Aviation Pioneer 200 (CS-UPK) at low tide on an empty beach in Portugal ...
Wonderful landing, without a scratch ...
No. 3 cylinder exhaust valve adjuster jumped out of its seat during flight ...
More details, pictures, video and portuguese authorities (GPIAA) official report in my blog:

I was lucky, Moli, indeed ... It was by far the smoothest landing in my life ...
Now I dropped the Pioneer with Jabiru and fly a safe PiperSport CS-USE. Very good airplane; Rotax 912 ULS, 7.5 hrs endurance, BRS, variable pitch prop, silent ... Here the link of my first solo flight in it, Monte do Lago airfield, Alentejo, Portugal ...

Wish you good flights & landings ...
I didn't get very far with looking at the link you posted as my Anti-Virus (Trend officescan) alerted me to malware package that page downloaded onto my PC. Probably nothing you have done, but I don't think I will go to that site again.
Details of Trojan that gor downloaded here: http://about-threats.trendmicro.com/Arc ... =Mal_Hifrm

Thanks for the advise, Neil. The link leads to my blog of Aerial Photography from Portugal". I didn't know that Trend alerts for a Trojan. It's the first time ... I use updated Trend Antivirus in my office with Firefox and it never made such alerts. Neither does Google Chrome. Which browser do you use ? How could I detect where the Trojan sits and how could I fix this ?
Again, thanks for this message Neil,
