Piper PA-28R-200-2 Cherokee Arrow II, G-BCGS

Summary:

The aircraft was landing after a one hour flight from an airfield in Dorset. The pilot decided to approach at a faster speed than normal and land with an intermediate flap setting because of a turbulent crosswind. However, he was unaware that the grass runway was very wet following recent heavy showers of rain. The aircraft landed about one third of the way down the runway and ran off the end.
