Aerotechnik EV-97 Eurostar, G-CCKK
The aircraft was being flown from Shobdon Airfield in Herefordshire to its home base at Hullavington Airfield in Wiltshire. As the aircraft approached the Cotswold Hills the pilot encountered worsening weather conditions. The aircraft diverted from track in an apparent attempt to avoid the poorest weather; it was seen manoeuvring at a very low height and appeared to be preparing for a forced landing. During this manoeuvring the aircraft was seen to roll quickly to its left and descend steeply until it struck the ground. The investigation concluded that the aircraft had suffered an aerodynamic stall with insufficient height for the pilot to effect a recovery. No safety recommendations are made.
