Piper PA-25-235 Pawnee, G-BLDG


During his second familiarisation flight on the aircraft, the pilot allowed the airspeed to decay excessively on the approach to land and rounded out too high, causing the aircraft to stall. The right wing contacted the ground and the aircraft landed heavily, slewing round to the right and coming to rest facing in the direction of approach. The pilot, who was wearing a full harness, was uninjured.
