Jabiru UL-450, G-TYKE


The aircraft was landing on Runway 07 at Charterhall Airfield after a local flight. The weather was fine but with a strong and gusting south-easterly wind. During the landing roll, the pilot had difficulty keeping the aircraft on the paved surface. He braked heavily and the aircraft slowed considerably but he was unable to prevent it leaving the runway on the left, downwind side. The nose landing gear dug into the soft ground and the propeller struck the surface. The main landing gear was damaged and the aircraft settled onto its underside. Neither occupant was injured.
