The aircraft was on final approach to land and descended over a rapeseed crop close to the end of the runway. The pilot states that he was attempting to land the aircraft “as short as possible on the short runway” but “misjudged” the approach and the landing gear made contact with the crop, causing the aircraft to nose over. The aircraft came to a stop on its back sustaining damage to the engine bay, propeller, windscreen, canopy and tailfin. The pilot was uninjured.
