AAIB investigation to Pegasus Quantum 15, G-MYZK, 20 March 2015

Loss of control on approach, Durham Tees Valley Airport, Darlington, 20 March 2015.


The aircraft was landing on Runway 23 at Durham Tees Valley Airport when the accident occurred. The surface wind was from 280° at 10 to 12 kt and described by the pilot as ‘blustery’. Shortly before landing the aircraft encountered turbulent air, possibly generated by the presence of large buildings upwind of the landing zone, lost height and struck the runway in a nose-down attitude.
