Loss of control during a go around, Peterborough/Conington Airport, Cambridgeshire, 27 February 2016.
The student pilot was flying solo visual circuits when the aircraft experienced an upset, probably as result of a gust of wind, at a low height that caused the left wing to rise. The student elected to go-around during which the aircraft track diverged across a field of crops that bordered the runway. The aircraft subsequently pitched nose-up followed by the left wing dropping. The aircraft rolled inverted before impacting the ground and the student was seriously injured.
