Pegasus Quantum 15-912, G-BYNO
After an uneventful flight and while on the approach to land, the wing pitched up and the aircraft turned to the right. It subsequently crashed into the roof of a barn close to the landing threshold of the airstrip. Ferrules had failed in four rigging cable assemblies causing structural failure of the aircraft. These four cable assemblies had been recently fitted. The cable assemblies were made locally; they were not approved by the manufacturer, nor were they approved by the BMAA.
