Midget Mustang, G-IIMT, 24 August 2011

Midget Mustang, G-IIMT


The engine suffered a loss of power after takeoff and the ensuing forced landing on an intersecting runway resulted in damage to the landing gear structure and wing. The fuel filler cap of the pressurised fuel tank was found loose which would have resulted in a loss of header pressure and this probably contributed to a fuel vapour lock.
