Date of occurrence: 15 September 2008

Summary:
The aircraft was landing on Runway 05 at Sandown, in good weather conditions and with a surface wind from the north at 5 to 8 kt. The pilot reported that, as the aircraft was just above the runway prior to making a ‘three point’ landing, the port wing stalled and struck the ground. Operations staff at the airfield reported that the wing drop occurred shortly after the aircraft had bounced on landing, following which the propeller struck the ground. The aircraft came to rest in a nose low attitude and the uninjured pilot, who was wearing a full harness, vacated the open cockpit.
