EV-97 TeamEurostar UK Eurostar, G-IHOT
The aircraft was on final approach to grass Runway 33 in good weather conditions. The temperature was estimated to be 18°C and the wind was light and variable. The pilot completed a normal touchdown on the runway centreline but the left wing then lifted back into the air. The pilot was unable to maintain directional control of the aircraft and it veered to the right and departed the runway. The aircraft then struck the landing direction ‘T’ which sits on a raised tarmac and metal platform. The aircraft suffered damage to its propeller, landing gear and the leading edge of the right wing. The occupants, who were uninjured, released their harnesses and vacated the aircraft normally. There was no fire.
