Rans S6-116 Coyote II, G-BVOI
At approximately 50 feet, after takeoff, a gust of wind lifted the left wing and turned the aircraft to the right. The corrective action taken resulted in a further loss of airspeed. There was insufficient height to recover this airspeed and the left leg separated as it struck the top of a drainage ditch. A successful touchdown was made on one wheel and the aircraft slewed around to the left before coming to rest.
