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

Summary:

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.
