Narrative:
Murphy Renegade Spirit G-RNGD substantially damaged when overturned in a take off accident at Roughay Farm, Lower Upham, Hampshire. The incident was also the subject of an AAIB Correspondence-only investigation, published on 14 October 2021 and the following is the summary from that...

"30 May 2021
Renegade Spirit UK
G-RNGD
Roughay Farm, Lower Upham, Hampshire
The pilot reported that during the take-off run, the aircraft veered to the left shortly after the tailwheel lifted off the ground. He was unable to regain the runway centreline and the aircraft entered a crop field where it came to rest inverted. The pilot was uninjured and reported that aircraft checks found nothing to explain the accident. He stated that the wind was around 5 to 6 kt and suggested that a crosswind gust could have been a factor."
