You are to be complimented for your understatement in the use of the term "unsuccessful" :D

That's a real bummer - every taildragger pilot's worst nightmare

My taildragger nightmares are a lot worse than this incident , which is little more than the aeronautical equivalent of bashing your car into the garage door, though admittedly a lot more expensive. Still, rotten luck and and a giant pain , I am sure.

"The pilot who was the only person aboard the single seater plane was uninjured."

Thank you for clarifying that Gloucestershire Echo!
