Thruster T600N 450, G-KDCD


The pilot reports that he was landing on Runway 06 at Stoke Airfield, which has a length of 400 metres. There was a light crosswind but very late on the approach the wind changed to a tailwind of some 10 kt. The pilot reports that he “flared late”, hitting the ground “too fast” and the aircraft bounced back into the air nose high. The aircraft stalled and nosed into the ground. Neither the pilot nor the passenger was injured and they were able to leave the aircraft safely.
