Loss of directional control on landing, near Hucknall Aerodrome, Nottinghamshire, 16 March 2015.


The pilot was conducting circuit practice at a grass airstrip. After the second landing, the aircraft was to the left side of the strip and deviating further left. The pilot attempted to correct the deviation with rudder and nosewheel steering but, with the additional need to brake firmly, was unable to prevent the aircraft running off the left side of the airstrip where it encountered soft ground and overturned.
