The landing gear of a small private plane collapsed as it arrived at Kilfinichen private airstrip on the isle of Mull.
Details of the the incident have been revealed in a report by the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB).
The 49-year-old pilot, the only occupant of the Cessna P120N, was uninjured in the accident which took place 7.15pm on May 31.
The aircraft was travelling from Wellesbourne Mountford in Warwick to Mull.
A statement in the report reads: “Approximately 100m (328ft) from touchdown, the nose landing gear collapsed and detached. The propellor contacted the ground, followed by the left wingtip and the aircraft came to a halt. The pilot was wearing a lap and diagonal harness and was uninjured.
“Further examination revealed that the nose landing gear had failed at the fork, leading to detachment of the nosewheel and then the nose gear attachments. The grass runway was described as soft in places and the pilot did not consider that this was a particularly hard landing.
“The aircraft was not examined by the AAIB and the reason for the failure of the
fork is unknown.”
