Aircraft left runway, Broadmeadow Farm, Herefordshire, 22 November 2015.
The pilot reported that after a normal landing on the wet grass strip at Broadmeadow Farm Airfield the aircraft veered to the left and he was unable to prevent it from rolling onto its right side. The aircraft sustained substantial damage to its wing and trike. The pilot and his passenger, who were uninjured, made the aircraft safe and vacated it normally.
The pilot was unable to explain why the aircraft veered left, but thought either that the wind speed had increased suddenly, or the right brake may have locked on the wet grass.
