Cramped his style
Having completed a circuit and landing at Tatenhill the CEA DR221B Dauphin’s pilot raised the flaps and applied full power to take off again. But, just as he lifted the tail he experienced a cramp spasm in his right leg, which caused him to straighten the leg to try and stop “excruciating pain”. This resulted in him increasing pressure on the right rudder pedal and brake, and despite him quickly closing the throttle, the aircraft turned rapidly through 90°, its left undercarriage leg collapsed, and the propeller struck the ground. The pilot said that there was little airflow in the cabin. Combined with the hot weather and a lack of fluid intake, this might have contributed to the onset of his cramp.
