Aircraft damage: Substantial
Location:Rødekro Airfield -   Denmark
Phase: Landing
Departure airport:Rødekro Airfield
Destination airport:Rødekro Airfield
The glider struck bushes and overturned while landing at Rødekro Airfield. The pilot had to lose height on finals because the plane was high as a result of thermals at the airfield.
His attention was focussed to land short, as the hangar was located at the aerodrome east end, and the necessary obstacle clearance height was overlooked.
