MW6-S (Modified) Merlin, G-MYIE
The pilot was carrying out a local flight when the aircraft developed a tendency to drop its right wing. He elected to carry out a ‘power on’ forced landing, at a higher speed than normal, but, on touching down, the aircraft turned over and damaged its nose landing gear and fuselage. The pilot considered that a dislodged flying control cable was the most likely cause of the wing drop. However, while it was being recovered from the field, the aircraft sustained further damage and, consequently, this could not be confirmed. The pilot and his passenger received minor injuries.
