DH89A Dragon Rapide, G-AKIF


Shortly after touching down on the grass runway at Duxford Aerodrome a gust of wind, or a bump in the runway, caused the aircraft to become airborne again. The pilot checked forward on the control column to bring the main landing gear back onto the ground but was unable to control the nose-down pitching motion of the aircraft and the engine propellers struck the ground.
