At 14:35 LT, the IS29-D2 glider, registered YR-1196, took off in an aerotow from Sānpetru aerodrome, for a long-distance training flight.
On his return from the flight, the pilot made three 360​​° spirals in the aerodrome area in order to lose altitude and embarked on a final procedure to land in a westerly direction.
Due to malfunctions of the flap positioning mechanism, the pilot had to repeat the flap removal maneuver at position 3 several times and as a result, at the exit of the steering turn in the direction chosen for landing, he found that it was above and to the right of the landing direction.
As a result, during the final approach for landing, in the pos 3 flaps configuration, the aerodynamic brakes removed and the variable speed below 80 km / h, the pilot performed a sequence of left-right turns in order to frame the aircraft on the optimal slope for landing. When applying the command to exit the last turn, at a height of about 30-40 m, the pilot lost control of the aircraft, it entered an uncontrolled rotation evolution. The glider made contact with the ground on the grassy surface of the aerodrome area.
