Narrative:
Skyranger Swift 912(1) G-CLNN: Substantially damaged 20 September 2020 in a landing accident at Desborough Airfield, Northamptonshire. The AAIB conducted a correspondence only investigation, and the following is the summary from that investigation:

"The pilot elected to land half-way along the available landing strip to avoid a ditch that crossed its midpoint. On landing, the aircraft bounced and the pilot made a nose down pitch input, causing damage to the nosewheel on the subsequent touchdown. He was unable to stop the aircraft before a hedgerow at the end of the field, causing damage to the right wing, engine cowling and propeller. The pilot was not injured. He believed the wind may have veered creating a tailwind on landing".
