Piper L21B Super Cub, G-SCUB


Whilst making a precautionary overflight of the airstrip prior to landing, the aircraft was inadvertently allowed to descend. The right wheel snagged a set of power cables, which spun the aircraft round, before it struck the ground. Recent cultivation of the land resulted in a low visual contrast between the cables and the background, making them hard for the pilot to see.
