Collision with obstacle during off-airfield landing, Rolladen-Schneider LS8-a, PH1332, near Nijmegen

Status : Closed

At a certain point, the glider had lost so much altitude that the pilot was forced to make an off-airfield landing. After the pilot had flown a circuit and aligned the glider for final, just prior to making his landing he saw a post in the field. He then initiated a turn to the right to avoid the post. The right wing made contact with the ground causing the glider to make a ground loop. During this manoeuvre, the tail of the aircraft still collided with the post. The pilot was unharmed. The fuselage of the aircraft broke in several places.
