Pioneer 200, G-CEVJ
The aircraft struck power lines whilst landing at a small airstrip. The pilot was aware of the hazard but did not recall seeing the power lines before the aircraft struck them. Recent changes in the physical environment around the airstrip since the pilot last flew from there may have contributed to an unusual visual effect which caused him to fly lower on approach than he intended.
