AAIB investigation to Pietenpol Air Camper, G-OFFA

Aircraft left the runway and the left landing gear collapsed, Turweston Aerodrome, Northamptonshire, 19 April 2016


After an uneventful flight from Bicester, the aircraft landed on Runway 27 at Turweston. A sudden gust of wind from the right caused the aircraft to weathercock and the right wing to lift. This resulted in the aircraft turning to the right, leaving the runway and imposing a lateral load on the left landing gear, which collapsed.
