Written off (damaged beyond repair) when crashed on launch from Perranporth Airfield (EGTP) Cornwall at an unknown date in 1977. As the exact date has not yet been established the date of the C of A expiry (21/7/1977) is stated as the nominal date, pending further confirmation. (The glider certainly crashed at Perranporth in the first "half" of 1977)
