Shadow Series CD, G-MYUS
The pilot had planned to carry out a local VFR cross-country flight from Old Sarum to Blandford Forum before returning to Old Sarum. Shortly after leaving the circuit, he contacted ATC and informed them that he was returning to the airfield. He gave no reason for his early return and there were no witnesses to the accident. Following concerns at the airfield that he had not arrived after the expected time, another club aircraft carried out a search and located the wreckage of G-MYUS in a field. The aircraft had struck the ground at a relatively high speed for the aircraft type, fatally injuring the pilot. It was possible that the pilot had become incapacitated in-flight, allowing the aircraft to enter a spiral dive.
