Hard landing, Comco Ikarus GmbH C 42 B, PH-4G9, Stadskanaal airfield

Status : Closed

As the microlight aeroplane passed the runway threshold, speed of descent increased, at which point the aircraft made a hard landing, in a horizontal position. The aircraft then tilted forward and slid on its nose, making a movement to the right. The tip of the left wing came into contact with the ground. The aircraft came to a standstill on its nose. During the landing, the nosewheel broke off, the underside of the fuselage was torn open, and the propeller was damaged. Both occupants remained unharmed.

The safety committee of Stadskanaal airfield investigated the occurrence and concludes that during final, the aircraft stalled due to too low speed in combination with a too high pitch attitude during flaring.
