AAIB investigation to Pierre Robin DR400/180 Regent, G-JMTS

Failed to remain airborne after takeoff from Stow Maries Aerodrome, on 19 January 2014.


The aircraft was taking off from grass Runway 20 when it suffered an uncommanded wing drop just after lift off. Whilst the pilot attempted to correct this, the aircraft touched down again and rolled off the end of the runway into a ploughed field, where it was severely damaged. The pilot believes a number of performance factors acted together to cause the accident.
