Narrative:
The pilot was flying on the route Liberec - Černá hora - Děčín - Vrchlabí - Liberec. On the section of the flight from Černá hora to Děčín, approximately in the area of Cvikov, he noticed a cloud break-up and assessed the meteorological situation as inadequate for further continuation of the flight. He returned to Liberec. Given his current altitude and distance from LKLB, he decided to make a field landing. During the landing, the left wing of the glider was caught by a grassy vegetation and fell to the ground.
The pilot was uninjured. There was extensive damage to the glider.

Causes of air accident
The cause of the air accident was an improperly selected landing area in the field. During the flare phase, the glider caught the left wing half on the grass, which caused its subsequent rotation in which it hit the ground.
