Aircraft Accident Report Form submitted by the pilot
The aircraft was one of two which encountered rapidly
deteriorating weather conditions during a ferry flight.
The pilot carried out a forced landing, during which the
nose landing gear struck a surface obstacle, causing it to
buckle and swing the aircraft into a bank. The pilot and
his passenger were uninjured.
History of the flight
The aircraft was one of two which had been purchased
in Italy and were being flown to Carlow in Ireland,
where they were to be based and transferred to the Irish
aircraft register. The aircraft were flying a leg between
Exeter and Haverfordwest when they encountered
deteriorating weather conditions. The forecast weather
had included visibility of more than 10 km with a cloud
base of 1,200 to 1,500 ft, occasionally lowering to 8 km
and 800 ft.
As the aircraft approached Swansea, the weather ahead
was worsening, and the pilot received a report from
Swansea Airport of visibility between 3,000 m and
4,000m, with a cloud base between 400 ft and 600 ft.
The pilots of both aircraft decided to land at Swansea
to await a weather improvement, but then encountered
rapidly reducing visibility, leaving only the coastline
below them visible. They descended to below 200 ft and
followed the coast, before deciding that a forced landing
on the beach was the only available option.
The pilot of I-9631 then identified a large area of open
ground which was being worked on. It had a track
running through it which was being used by trucks (it
was later learnt that the site was being prepared for the
construction of a university campus). He overflew the
site, to check its suitability, and guided the second pilot
to a safe landing. The pilot then landed his own aircraft.
Although the landing itself was successful, the aircraft
encountered a rock or ridge that caused the nose landing
gear to buckle, swinging the aircraft into a bank. The
pilot and his passenger were uninjured.

The pilot and his passenger were uninjured.
This is commonly called "a good Landing".  Good job! Smiley

We use 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 2 to pull a trigger. I'm lazy and I'm tired of smiling.
