PZL-104 Wilga 80, G-WLGA
During takeoff the left front wheel ‘dug in’ to a soft area of the grass runway. The aircraft departed the runway and came to rest, inverted, in a stream that ran parallel to the runway. The pilot, who also owned the farm strip, attributed the accident to inadequacies in the runoff areas of the runway and that he did not carry out a sufficient examination of the runway condition prior to the flight.
