Piper PA-28-161 Cherokee Warrior II, G-BGYH
Whilst on short finals to land, the aircraft, which was being flown by a student pilot, descended below the normal approach path whilst appearing to encounter a down draught of wind. The instructor pilot took control and applied power, but was unable to arrest the descent rate. The aircraft’s right undercarriage struck the ground before the runway and separated from the aircraft.
