Aero AT-3 R100, G-SKAZ
While landing on Runway 06 at Denham, in gusty conditions, the aircraft bounced. The pilot elected to go around from the bounce, selecting full power. During the bounce the aircraft had developed a left-wing low attitude and the pilot believes that, due to his attempt to recover from the developing left roll with aileron, he was slow applying rudder to counteract the increased torque from the engine. The torque resulted in the aircraft yawing left, with an increasing left roll, from which the pilot was unable to recover, despite full right aileron. The left wing touched the ground and the aircraft cartwheeled. There was damage to both wings, the fuselage, the landing gear, propeller and canopy. However, there was no fire and the pilot was uninjured.
