Tipsy Nipper T.66 Series 3 Nipper, G-ONCS

Summary:

After intentionally entering a spin, the aircraft adopted a flat attitude, from which the pilot found it difficult to recover. After some 26 turns, he effected a recovery and made an emergency landing on to marshy ground; the aircraft came to rest inverted. Data gathered by a webcam and a laptop computer, fitted to the aircraft by the pilot in order to ‘self critique’ his aerobatic routines, allowed an analysis of the spin to be made.
