Dragon 200, G-MMAE
The aircraft took off at close to its maximum all up weight, from a grass strip, towards rising ground. It encountered turbulence and then made a forced landing after the end of the runway and was extensively damaged. Whilst the aircraft’s type acceptance data sheet performance figures show that it should have been able to complete this manoeuvre, the aircraft did not perform as expected. One Safety Recommendation has been made.
