Piper PA-18-150 (Modified) Super Cub, G-BEOI


On landing the aircraft veered to the left and departed the runway into an adjacent field. The pilot attempted to taxi back onto the runway but the main wheels dropped into a rut on the runway edge and it pitched forward onto its nose. The pilot was wearing a new pair of ex-service flying boots which made it difficult to locate and operate the brake levers and this may have contributed to not maintaining directional control.
