Shortly after carrying out a touch-and-go landing, at night on runway 29, a loud 'chuffing' sound was heard. Safety checks were begun, but the cockpit commenced to fill with smoke with no obvious sign of fire. Fresh air vents were closed and a close circuit was carried out for a normal landing. It was subsequently found that a number of exhaust pipe slip joint bolts were missing. One exhaust pipe had become detached and the escaping hot exhaust gases had burnt through the lower cowling.
