AAIB investigation to Jodel D112, G-BIAH

Nosed over on landing, Barton Ashes Airstrip, Hampshire, 7 May 2017.


The pilot reported that he was on a local flight from Barton Ashes, during which the weather was fine with a light and variable wind.

After an uneventful landing, as the aircraft came to a stop, its tail lifted slowly and continued to do so until the aircraft came to rest inverted. The pilot, who suffered minor injuries, vacated the aircraft through a broken side window with the assistance of a bystander.

The pilot attributed the accident to the strength of brake action. The aircraft sustained severe damage predominately to its cockpit structure and its engine was shock-loaded.
