Pegasus Quantum 15, G-MYNO
The pilot had flown from Harringe Airfield in Kent to the private grass airstrip near Rye, East Sussex. He recalled that there was a light northerly surface wind, becoming more westerly and gusty by the time of the accident. The airstrip was orientated 02/20 and was described by the pilot as narrow, fenced, and with trees immediately to the west. He flew an approach to Runway 20, but encountered turbulence on the approach and twice flew a go-around. The third approach was flown to a landing, but the microlight appeared to be caught by a gust of wind after landing which blew it to the left and into a wire fence where it came to an abrupt halt.
