Narrative:
On the afternoon of 30 July 2019, a local pilot and owner of a DR-107 One Design amateur-built aircraft commenced flying activities at Narromine Airport, New South Wales. At about 14:15 Eastern Standard Time, while conducting aerobatics, the pilot experienced degraded rudder control. The pilot elected to land immediately on runway 22. On landing, the left rudder pedal/cable mechanism collapsed, the aircraft veered to the right of the runway and ground looped, colliding with a nearby gable marker. The pilot sustained minor injuries and the aircraft was substantially damaged.
