Description

The commander, who was the sole occupant on board, was about to land on a 260 m long private grass strip in Lier, Buskerud. He was not satisfied with the approach and chose to abort the landing. The expected increase in engine power did not materialize and he had to make an emergency landing in a field to the right of the runway. The landing was not successful and the right wing struck the soft ground. The plane then flipped over to its left wing and nosed over. The airplane was substantially damaged. The commander was not injured. No mechanical failures have been found on the engine.
