Europa XS, G-IRON
The aircraft touched down further along the strip than planned and the pilot elected to go around. During the climb out a wingtip clipped a tree and the aircraft landed heavily in the next field. Both the pilot and passenger were uninjured. The pilot considered that the wind had dropped, increasing the landing distance required.
