Tanarg/Ixess 15 912S(1), G-CEBH


The aircraft was flying from Roddige Airfield, Staffordshire on a local flight. The weather conditions were described as good. On returning to the airfield the pilot positioned the aircraft to land on Runway 09; this runway was 440 m in length and its grass surface was dry. The pilot reported that the speed was a little fast on short finals, and when he flared to land the aircraft it ‘ballooned’. The aircraft landed heavily, went off the side of the runway into a crop of rape and rolled over onto its side. The pilot was uninjured. The fuselage pod and the front steering mechanism were damaged.
