Runway overrun on landing, near Westcott, Buckinghamshire, 10 July 2016.
The aircraft overran the end of a grass airstrip during landing, sustaining substantial damage and causing minor injury to two of the three occupants. The landing performance calculated by the pilot did not fully account for the landing conditions and did not include a recommended safety factor. The approach itself was flown in a brisk crosswind, with a reduced flap setting from that on which the performance figures were based. Touchdown probably occurred at a higher airspeed than was required, resulting in the pilot being unable to stop the aircraft before the end of the airstrip.
