Narrative:
Written off 24/8/2012 when flew into a tree at a Private grass airstrip 13 nautical miles south-south-east of Norwich, Norfolk. According to the following extract from the official AAIB report into the accident:

"The aircraft became low and slow on final approach to a grass airstrip 13 nautical miles south-south-east of Norwich, Norfolk. A go-around was initiated but the aircraft appeared to stall and rolled to the right. The aircraft recovered quickly from the stall, but the manoeuvre left it heading towards a small tree which it subsequently struck".

Damage sustained to airframe: Damage to propeller, engine cowling, nose undercarriage leg, wing struts and leading edges. Possible engine shock-loading. All of which were presumably severe enough to render the airframe as "beyond economical repair", as the registration G-MZCA was cancelled by the CAA on 23/4/2015 (over two and a half years later...) as "Permanently withdrawn from use"
