Reims Cessna F152, G-OSFC
The aircraft crashed on short final approach in blustery conditions. The instructor reported that he believed the accident happened after ‘windshear or a down-draft caused by the flow of air over the nearby hangars and trees caused the right wing to stall, and the aircraft to enter a spin to the right’. An aftercast from the Met Office stated that ‘It is clear from both actual reports and radar imagery that a great deal of showery/CB activity lay over south-east and Central England at the time of the accident’.
