P and M Aviation Quik GTR, G-HOTR
The microlight failed to gain height after taking off from a field site. With insufficient distance to abort the takeoff safely, the pilot attempted to gain airspeed to clear the boundary hedge. However, the main wheels caught in the hedge and the aircraft stalled, landing heavily in the field beyond. The pilot believed adverse local wind effects had played a part in the accident.
