During a training flight, the pilot undergoing training appeared to become unwell and passed control to his instructor. The instructor flew the microlight back to the airstrip in use but, on landing, the microlight bounced and the instructor opted to fly a go-around. At this point, the other pilot appeared inadvertently to apply right rudder pedal, which the instructor was unable to counter. The microlight yawed right and departed from controlled flight, crashing to the right of the airstrip.

G-MZIY was written off (damaged beyond economic repair) in this incident: it sustained severe damage to forward fuselage, engine compartment and main flying surfaces. As a result the registration was cancelled by the CAA on 15.10.2014 as aircraft "destroyed"
