Narrative:
Written off (damaged beyond repair) 22-03-1991 when crashed at Cleobury Mortimer (Milson) Airstrip, Shropshire. Aircraft skidded and collided with a tree when the pilot decided to abandon a take off from a wet grass runway. No injuries sustained to the two persons on board (pilot and one passenger)

Damage sustained to airframe: Per the AAIB report "severe damage to wings, fuselage and landing gear". Presumably the damage was enough to render the airframe as "beyond economic repair", as the registration G-BRDA was cancelled by the CAA on 07-06-1991 as "Permanently withdrawn from use"
