Staaken Z-21 Flitzer, G-FLIZ
G-FLIZ made an approach to land with a crosswind from the left and touched down left main wheel first. As the right wing and tail lowered, the left wing rose rapidly accompanied by a swing to the right. The pilot was unable to control the ensuing motion and the wingtip and propeller struck the ground. This caused the aircraft to pitch forward and it came to rest inverted.
