AAIB investigation to Reims Cessna F152, G-BHNA

Loss of control during landing approach, Retford Gamston Airfield, Nottinghamshire, 14 May 2017.


During the landing approach the aircraft was seen to pitch up, roll left and descend rapidly to the ground. The pilot could not recall what happened and differences between eyewitness accounts prevented a clear determination of what happened during the final approach, whether the final manoeuvre was initiated by a gust lifting the right wing, or by an initial pitch-up as part of an attempted go-around.
