Aircraft damage: Substantial

Destination airport:Tubride Airfield
Investigating agency: AAIU
The aircraft, an ICP Ventura, was approaching the easterly runway at Tubride Airfield, Co. Meath. As it was flared for landing, the left wing dropped, and struck the ground. The nose landing gear subsequently impacted with the ground and detached from the aircraft. The aircraft slid along the runway on its nose cowling for approximately 20 metres, resulting in substantial damage to the propeller blades. There were no injuries to either of the two occupants on board. There was no fire.

The effects of windshear during flaring for a landing can be challenging for a pilot. In this accident, the challenge for the Pilot in correcting for the effects of possible windshear was likely exacerbated by the overall gradient of the runway and the significant and prominent hillock with which the dropping left wing impacted.
