Oldfield Baby Lakes, G-BTZL

Summary:

Shortly after landing, the tail of the aircraft lifted and it nosed over. The pilot stated that he either inadvertently applied the brakes or released the elevator back-pressure during the landing roll. Another factor was his lack of recent experience of ‘taildragger’ aircraft, having last flown them in the 1970s.
