The weight shift microlight was returning from Otherton to Halfpenny Green when the accident occurred. The pilot was seriously injured in the accident and had little memory of the accident flight. There were various witness descriptions of the final descent, including the wing collapsing and the microlight spiralling down but the initiating event was not identified. The pilot was not able to recover from a tight spiral or tumbling condition which continued to the ground.
