AAIB investigation to DHC-1 Chipmunk 22, G-BCOO

Runway excursion after landing, Hawarden Airfield, 31 May 2014.


During a touch-and-go the aircraft developed an unstable oscillation after touchdown, causing it to deviate either side of the runway centreline. The Pilot in Command (PIC) took control from the handling pilot, but was unable to prevent the aircraft departing the paved runway onto the adjacent grass and striking a taxiway marker board. There were no injuries and both pilots vacated the aircraft without assistance.
