from local radio news….

A plane has crashed in a field near Sandown Airport this morning (Saturday).
A spokesperson for Sandown Airport said an aircraft had come down and emergency crews were attending the incident.
Plumes of smoke can been seen over the airfield

Looks like the Pilot survived…he was one lucky guy looking at this !

Unfortunately, no conclusions in the report.

To be fair, there is a conclusion, but it states:
There was insufficient evidence to establish why the aircraft had behaved as it did and why the accident occurred.
As the aircraft in question is a home-built/ULM design, I believe that the AAIB is not obligated to fully investigate such accidents, seeing as there is less of a regulatory structure to deal with possible airworthiness issues (don't quote me on that though). With that in mind, the report is still quite comprehensive. Looking at the images, it's a good thing the pilot managed to survive the accident.

Your belief is wrong

It's rare, but not unknown, for the AAIB to mount a field investigation into an accident involving a light aircraft with no fatalities. They didn't in this case, as the report makes clear.

Yes it's rare.
The decision on what level of investigation or whether to have one at all, is based on a few factors including if Fatalities occured, no aircraft is excluded from investigation because of it's Type/class

Thanks for correcting me on that one, I wasn't sure. Different states deal with this in different ways. I know of one where ULM accidents are basically treated as 'you took the risk' and that's the end of the investigation.
