Inadvertent flight control restriction, near Derby, Derbyshire, 21 September 2014.
During a training flight, the pilot undergoing training appeared to become unwell and passed control to his instructor. The instructor flew the microlight back to the airstrip in use but, on landing, the microlight bounced and the instructor opted to fly a go-around. At this point, the other pilot appeared inadvertently to apply right rudder pedal, which the instructor was unable to counter. The microlight yawed right and departed from controlled flight, crashing to the right of the airstrip.
