The aircraft hit a runway edge marker after it bounced and drifted left during a landing on the grass runway at Lashenden. The pilot, who was undertaking a refresher flight in this two-seat Pitts, reported that the drift was caused by a crosswind, combined with a lapse in his spatial awareness. He subsequently regained control and completed the landing safely.
