Pegasus Quik, G-CDKM


The pilot encountered reducing visibility during a flight from his microlight site at Ince, near Formby, and decided to route directly back there as a precaution. As he flew north along the Wirral Peninsular, the visibility worsened and he decided to carry out a field landing rather than attempt to cross the mouth of the River Mersey in the poor conditions. The pilot chose a large field and landed, but after a short ground run the aircraft encountered a small but very wet area and sank in, turning over onto its side. The pilot, who suffered minor bruising, observed that the chosen field was suitable in all respects, apart from the very small area of wet ground which had not been visible from the air.
