Gemini Flash IIA, G-MVSV

Summary:

Immediately after takeoff, the weight-shift microlight entered a steep climb. The nose then dropped (probably as a result of a stall) and the aircraft struck the ground in a steep nose-down altitude. The owner piloting the aircraft was fatally injured. This was the owner’s first flight in the aircraft and also his first solo flight. There was no evidence that the pilot had received any formal training prior to this attempt.
