Rockwell Commander 112, G-BDLT
The pilot was completing his third flight of the day, and his second landing that day at Lee-on-Solent Airfield. The weather was fine, with a northerly surface wind of 18 kt; Runway 05 was in use. During the landing roll, the aircraft veered to the left and the pilot was unable to regain control through use of the rudder pedals. The aircraft left the paved surface and encountered soft ground at the runway edge, causing the nose landing gear to dig in and collapse.
