Narrative:
Substantially damaged 22-08-2009 when crashed at Runway 15, Felixkirk Airfield, Felixkirk, 3 miles north-east of Thirsk, North Yorkshire (at approximate co ordinates 5415' 06"N, 00118' 01" W)

The pilot reported that he was making a full-flap approach to Runway 15, which is 500 metres long, with a grass surface. The wind was variable between 220-270 degrees at 5-10 knots. He landed long and was unable to prevent the aircraft from colliding with a boundary hedge and fence. He considered that his lack of familiarity with the aircraft type and the airfield were contributory to the accident.

Registration G-MZBD cancelled by the CAA as "Permanently Withdrawn From Use" on 12-01-2010. However, registration reinstated to new owners 02-02-2011
