Narrative:
c/no. 387 DH.60 [Cirrus II]: registered G-EBRU [C of R 1399] 8.6.27 to Ivor H McClure, Stag Lane. C of A 1144 issued 9.6.27. Ivor McClure and S.L.F. St. Barbe left Stag Lane 29.7.27 in attempt to visit 14 European countries in 14 days.

On 6.8.27, McClure landed on a parade-ground at Rákoskeresztúr, near Budapest, Hungary: Crew was performing a demo flight in Budapest meeting. On the takeoff run, an undercarriage leg failed and aircraft came to rest in Rákoskeresztúr. Although both occupants were uninjured, the aircraft was damaged beyond repair. Aircraft was owned by Ian H. McClure. The accident report indicates that only minor damage to the undercarriage was incurred and the Moth was shipped back to England; it was possibly therefore rebuilt as c/n 446.

Registration G-EBRU cancelled 18.10.27 due to destruction or permanent withdrawl from use of aircraft"
