Jabiru UL-450, G-BZGT
Shortly before touching down, the pilot attempted to apply more right aileron, but was unable to do so. The aircraft bounced on touchdown and during the landing roll the left wing struck some crops and the nosewheel mechanism was damaged. Subsequent inspection found that the right seat headset cable had restricted the movement of the exposed aileron bell crank and pushrod assembly located behind the seats.
