Pietenpol Air Camper, G-DAYZ


The aircraft was landing on the grass strip in a south easterly direction. The wind was reported to be light and variable. On touchdown the aircraft bounced and veered right. The pilot was unable to bring it under control, it entered a 2 ft high corn crop and almost flipped inverted. He was uninjured and vacated the aircraft with the assistance of flying club members. He was unsure as to the reason for his inability to counter the yaw to the right.
