Narrative:
Aeropro Eurofox 912(S) G-ETUG: Substantially damaged 20 July 2020 in an accident at Lempitlaw Airfield, two miles north-east of Kelso, Roxburghshire. According to the AAIB Correspondence Only report: "The accident occurred on the approach to Runway 22 at Lempitlaw Airfield. The student had allowed the airspeed to decay excessively over the threshold. The instructor took control to execute a go-around but was unable to prevent the left wingtip touching the runway causing damage to the left wing and a gear attachment bolt. The instructor believed that earlier intervention might have prevented the accident".
