Narrative:
Pegasus Quik GT450, G-CGNK: substantially damages due to Loss of control during landing, Beccles Aerodrome, Ellough, 2 NM southeast of Beccles, Suffolk, 19 October 2019. The official AAIB report was published on 9 January 2020, and the following is the summary from it:

"The accident occurred during a training flight with an instructor, who was pilot flying and seated in the rear, and a passenger in the front. Having flown a go-around due to turbulence experienced on the first approach to Runway 27, the aircraft was re-established on short final for a second approach, which was stable. However, at a height of less than 10 ft above the runway, the aircraft suddenly pitched down and rolled right. The pilot was unable to prevent the aircraft touching down firmly, following which the trike tipped onto its right side and slid for about 20 ft along the runway before coming to a stop. Both occupants had to be helped from the aircraft by airfield staff."

Damage sustained by the airframe: Per the above AAIB report "Severe damage to airframe and wing"
