Narrative:
The airplane was landing on Prievidza Airport - LZPE during the polish junior gliding competition. The plane touched hard and then the pilot wanted to go-around. During this maneuver he lost control (most probably due to the power of the spinning propeller took the plane to the side) where he crashed into the row of parked gliders, damaging five of them. At least one of the gliders is written off.

Gliders known damaged:
- PZL-Bielsko SZD-55-1 Promyk (SP-3955)
- Rolladen-Schneider LS4 (D-4972)
