"Pegasus Quantum 15 (Modified), G-BZBR: Aircraft struck a fence on final approach, Charity Farm, Warwickshire, 7 August 2018.

After taking off from the unlicensed airstrip, the pilot encountered turbulence, so he decided to complete a circuit and land, rather than continue with the flight. He flew a long and low approach and collided with a wire mesh fence at the landing strip boundary. The pilot suffered serious injuries and the aircraft was extensively damaged.

The pilot considered that his approach may have been affected by the adverse wind conditions."
