Pegasus Quantum 15, G-MZIU

Summary:

The aircraft was en-route from Rufforth Airfield to Crosland Moor Airfield when a blade of the three-bladed propeller detached near its root. The consequent severe vibration caused an upset from controlled flight and led to components detaching from the engine. When control was regained, the pilot performed a successful forced landing, although he suffered spinal injuries during the event and after exiting the aircraft.
