Ikarus C42 FB80, G-CFLD
The aircraft touched down in a crosswind at the side of the runway and bounced. It began a ‘porpoising’ motion and the pilot, in an attempt to recover, lost control of the aircraft. It touched down again in soft ground to the side of the runway and the nose landing gear collapsed.
