Pioneer 300 Hawk, G-OHJE

Summary:

The aircraft was taking-off on a flight as part of the renewal of its Permit-to-Fly, from an airstrip with a 470 m runway. The pilot elected to use the direction which had an upslope because this was favoured by the wind direction. However, the aircraft was unable to clear a high wire fence at the far end of the runway. This brought the aircraft to a standstill with the nose landing gear collapsed.
