The student was undertaking circuit consolidation training and had completed several circuits with his instructor. The instructor briefed the student for a solo circuit consolidation detail, left the aircraft and the student taxied to the holding point for grass Runway 06.

The wind was calm, the visibility was over 10 km and there was no cloud. The student reported later that the ground felt very bumpy and that he was “conscious to protect the nosewheel”. He lined up on the left side of the runway because the right side was out of use. He applied power and “significant right rudder”, but the aircraft pulled slightly left. He recalled applying full right rudder but the aircraft began a “violent left turn” and passed from the marked runway onto the grass beyond.

He closed the throttle while maintaining full right rudder and the aircraft straightened but still did not turn right. The aircraft was travelling at “significant speed” as it passed over a kerb and onto the perimeter road.

A car was parked behind a lorry on the far side of the road. The left wing of the aircraft hit the driver’s door of the car just before the nose hit the rear right corner of the lorry. Following the impact sequence, the aircraft had rotated 90 degrees to the left, the nose gear leg had collapsed through deformation of the yoke, and the right wing had wedged itself underneath the side of the lorry. The student was unhurt and vacated the aircraft over the left wing in the normal manner

Aircraft repaired, and returned to flight. Sold 1/8/2011 to new owners, and re-registered in Malta
