AAIB investigation to Jodel DR1050 Ambassadeur, G-AYLL

Loss of control on the ground and rear fuselage failure, Lee-on-the-Solent Airfield, 4 November 2014


Following an apparently normal touchdown, the pilot lost directional control of the aircraft, which departed onto the grass beside the runway. Inspection revealed a major failure of the rear fuselage. Although some deterioration of the wooden structure was present, it could not be determined whether this had been a causal factor in the loss of control or a consequence of the ground manoeuvre.
