Rans S6-ES Coyote II, G-CCLH
Intending to land on a beach, the pilot first tested the surface by performing a low pass during which he allowed the aircraft’s wheels to touch the surface. The wheels hit a drift of sand which caused the nosewheel to collapse and the nose of the aircraft to become buried in the sand, bringing the aircraft to an abrupt halt.
