Narrative:
Flylight Airports Dragon Chaser G-CIFM: This single seat weight-shift power ultralight was damaged in a forced landing at whilst in the circuit at Sutton Meadows Airfield, Cambridgeshire on 23 June 2020. The AAIB Correspondence report into the incident was as follows:

"During the crosswind leg of a circuit the engine stopped, possibly as a result of carburettor icing, which led to the pilot carrying out a forced landing across one of the runways. However, the aircraft was not able to stop within the runway’s width and, as the pilot attempted to steer the aircraft away from the runway’s edge, the aircraft tipped on to a wingtip and sustained damage."
