Brandli Cherry BX-2, G-BXUX


Whilst taking off at a relatively high weight from an undulating grass airstrip, a partial failure of the wooden structure supporting the right main landing gear occurred. The aircraft climbed away safely and, after several low passes along the runway for observers to assess the damage, the landing gear collapsed when the aircraft landed. It was determined that the structure which failed had probably been weakened over a period of time by the aircraft’s operation from the undulating grass surface of the runway at its home airfield.
