Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
Towards the end of a flight from Brussels to Oxford (Kidlington), the pilot was cleared to land from a visual straight-in approach to Runway 01. The surface wind was reported as 030 degrees/15 knots. As the aircraft crossed the airfield boundary, it started to roll to the left. Shortly after, it struck the ground to the west of the runway threshold. Despite an extensive investigation, no technical malfunction was identified which could have caused the apparent uncontrolled roll to the left.

Although there was no other conclusive evidence which would explain the manoeuvre, it is possible that control of the aircraft was lost during an attempted late go-around, or as a result of an unknown distraction.
