    UV degradation of aircraft coverings

    AAIU report just out on a Quik GT450 Microlight, G-GTEE, near Convoy Co Donegal, 30 September 2012:

    The microlight aircraft was making an approach to land at Carrickbrack airfield near Convoy in Co Donegal following a local flight from Letterkenny. The weather conditions at the time were blustery with southwesterly winds gusting to 25-30 kts at ground level. At a height of approximately 300 to 350 feet, the sail of the microlight failed without warning. The microlight descended rapidly and impacted a wet agricultural field. The Pilot, who was the sole occupant, sustained serious injuries. The microlight was destroyed.
