AAIB investigation to Piper PA-34-220T Seneca V, OK-OKD

Crashed during go-around, Newquay Airport, Cornwall, 17 August 2015.


The pilot was landing at Newquay Airport at the end of a three-sector flight from Pribram Airport, near Prague, Czech Republic. The aircraft bounced on landing and a go-around was initiated. At some stage during the touchdown, the right engine propeller blades contacted the runway. After lifting off, the aircraft started a low level climbing turn to the right, which continued towards a downwind heading. The aircraft was then seen to yaw to the right and enter a steep descent, before impacting the ground.
