Jodel D150 Mascaret, G-BHEG
Whilst climbing out after takeoff, the pilot heard a thud and saw that the landing light cover on the left wing leading edge had failed. He experienced severe control difficulties and an attempted forced landing back at the airfield resulted in the left wing striking the ground, slewing the aircraft to a halt on the grass. The landing light cover had been made using an inappropriate method.
