Zenair CH601UL, G-YOXI


The pilot was performing a low flypast in his aircraft along a farm strip; it was not his intention to land there and he made no attempt to do so. There were power cables at the end of the strip and the aircraft pulled up and climbed over them. As it did so the main wing spar of the aircraft failed causing both wings to fold upwards. The aircraft crashed into a field and a severe fire started immediately. The pilot and his passenger were fatally injured in the accident.
