Cessna 172R, G-EGEG
The aircraft, with four people on board, touched down approximately 100 m into Runway 10 at Strathallen, which is 600 m in length. Due to a combination of the aircraft’s high weight and a light headwind, the aircraft did not slow down as expected. Initially, a go-around was attempted but the aircraft collided with the boundary fence, ran across a field and down a slope, where it was stopped by a row of trees. The occupants sustained no injuries.
