Zenair CH 601HD Zodiac, G-BVPL


After a local flight lasting approximately 50 minutes from Midlem Airstrip, control of the aircraft was lost and it crashed approximately ½ nm from the airstrip. It impacted the ground in an area of gorse bushes at relatively high speed and in a nose down attitude. The weather in the area at the time was both unlikely to have been suitable for VFR flying and highly conducive for carburettor icing. No technical or medical causal factors were identified during the investigation.
