Beech Baron, D-IBPN
While landing at Elstree Airfield, the pilot initiated the flare early and the aircraft sank heavily onto the runway. The aircraft began to swing right and, despite the application of full left rudder, ran off the runway and onto the grass. During the deceleration, the right landing gear collapsed, causing the aircraft to swing further to the right, and the nose landing gear collapsed before the aircraft came to rest.
