Ikarus C42 FB UK, G-IAJS
The aircraft had completed its first three flights without incident with a PFA check pilot. During a subsequent high speed taxi run made by the owner the aircraft became airborne, so he elected to take off and fly a circuit. On touchdown, the aircraft yawed to the left and the pilot decided to go-around. However, the engine speed decayed, probably due to carburettor icing, and the aircraft stalled from a height of around 50 ft.
