Gemini Flash IIA, G-MWWK
At the time of notification of the accident, the pilot had informed the AAIB that he had been landing behind another aircraft which unexpectedly performed a go-around. On touchdown, G-MWWK had entered the propeller wash of the preceding aircraft and the pilot had lost control of his aircraft which tipped onto its left side.
The pilot states that he was taxiing and practising ground manoeuvres when a gust of wind caught under his right wing and the left wing entered some tall grass at the side of the taxiway. He intended to brake sharply to bring the aircraft to a halt but accidentally depressed the foot throttle, causing the aircraft to tip onto its left side and collapse the left wing. The pilot could not explain his differing accounts of the accident.
