DH82A Tiger Moth, G-APAO, 29 July 2004

DH82A Tiger Moth, G-APAO


During a baulked landing on a temporary grass runway, the right main landing gear of the aircraft struck a proprietary ‘Tribox’ marker, being used to mark the runway’s left edge. This caused the aircraft to decelerate, caused damage to the landing gear and gave the pilot cause to abandon his attempt to go-around. The investigation identified that the marker did not satisfy Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) requirements in terms of size, weight, or frangibility.
