Conditions were reported to be very hot with considerable turbulence on the approach to land. On short final, the pilot twice had to lower the nose and reduce airbrake. After a larger than normal control movement on roundout, the tail wheel touched first, throwing the glider onto the main wheel, which collapsed. Notification of this accident was not received until 16 November 1988 and no on-site investigation was carried out.
