EV-97 Team Eurostar, G-CESF
Shortly after landing at a private airstrip at Saddington, Leicestershire, the pilot realised that the aircraft was not slowing down, despite the application of brakes. He decided to steer the aircraft into a field to the right of the grass runway, but the aircraft did not stop and it entered a ditch. Ground marks indicated that the brakes were applied. Later examination of the aircraft found the throttle to be partially open.
