Gemini Flash IIA, G-MYCS
The microlight aircraft suffered an engine failure in flight and the pilot carried out a forced landing into a meadow. During the landing roll the nosewheel hit a hole in the ground, causing the wheel to move full travel to the right. The aircraft slewed to the right and tipped over to its left, causing the trike and wing to strike the ground. The pilot observed that landing options had been limited, and considered that the forced landing would have been entirely successful had the aircraft not encountered the hole.
