Narrative:
Damaged in an accident, porssibly at RAF Newton, Nottinghamshire, in late March or early April of 1982 (hence the date of "31 March 1982" being purely nominal, pending further information). Deemed damaged beyond economic repair, hence not repaired, struck off charge as Cat.5(G/I) and allocated to ground instructional use as 8767M at RAF St. Athan

Put up for disposal by sale or tender in November 2005, and sold to new owners in the United States; Registered as N635XX to owners in Florida in 2007 .
The new owner an A&P inspected the airplane and found absolutely no damage.
He did find the engine mount spacers were installed on the wrong side of the rubber engine mounts, causing the engine to be miss aligned. The plane sat for 22 years due to this mechanical mistake.
