Narrative:
The pilot was practising engine failures after take off from Leuchars, Fife. The aircraft turned first to the left and then to the right and then began to decend rapidly. It then struck the grass heavily on the north side of the airfield causing the undercarriage to collapse. Both crew were able to escape from the aircraft unaided and were taken to Dundee hospital.

With the impending replacement of the Bulldog, XX666 was not repaired and was sent to RAF Newton, Nottinghamshire for storage pending disposal. It was eventually sold to a businessman in Florida for spares for his Bulldog fleet, then to N524SB, at Hershey, Nebraska

The pilot was also involved in the incident involving Bulldog T.1 XX665 on 20/03/1997
