Piper PA-32-260 Cherokee Six, G-BHGO, 11 December 2005

Piper PA-32-260 Cherokee Six, G-BHGO


Following a normal landing on a paved runway in gusty wind conditions, the aircraft veered to the left and departed the side of the runway without the pilot being able to regain control. The aircraft hit an embankment and three fence posts, damaging the aircraft and causing a serious spinal injury to one of the passengers. The cause of the loss of control on the ground could not be established, but the gusty wind, distraction from a nervous passenger, or an accidental control input could have been contributory factors.
