Pioneer 300, G-IPKA


The pilot was undertaking a licence revalidation check flight with an LAA coach. Shortly after touchdown, the left mainwheel ran into a narrow rut parallel to and adjacent to the edge of the grass strip. The pilot applied full right rudder, but was unable to turn the aircraft to the right. As the aircraft decelerated, the left landing gear leg collapsed. The nose then swung 60° to the right and the nose gear collapsed, causing the propeller to strike the ground, stopping the engine.
