Lightness 2 Lumbar strap

A lightness two lumbar strap failed in flight recently.
The harness in question had been SIv'd and had a few hours on it but was not in generally worn condition.
Please check your lumbar straps where they pass through the adjustment buckles.

Further information

The SHGC safety investigation committee understand that the pilot of the harness in question may have consumed several pies and possibly a kebab in the week prior to the incident, which may have contributed to the failure.

We recommend that all users of similar harnesses carefully inspect the setting of their trouser belt before flight and especially prior to undertaking SIV and aerobatic manoeuvres.

Sad face :(

Cheers for that Dave. Just ordered one from SP (Lightness2, not more pies!) :)
