Gemini Flash IIA, G-MVXB


The flex-wing microlight was engaged on a training exercise when the accident occurred. The weather was fine, with a surface wind from 090° at 10 kt. The student pilot flew a normal approach and landing to Runway 08 and, as the aircraft slowed, made a steering input to turn to the left in order to vacate the runway. As he did so, the instructor’s right foot became stuck between the rear steering control and the right fuselage side, preventing the student from returning the steering to centre. The aircraft steered sharply to the left, causing it to roll to the right and overturn. Neither occupant was injured.
