Shortly after takeoff from a grass strip at Sutton Bank Airfield, the gyroplane developed a nose low attitude and descended over the edge of an escarpment. Its engine noise was heard to reduce and a ‘crunch’ noise was heard by witnesses as it began its descent. The wreckage of the gyroplane was discovered at the base of the escarpment where the pilot had been fatally injured.
