Written off (damaged beyond repair) 06-06-2010 when struck by Cessna F150M G-BPAX whilst parked at Shoreham Airport, Cecil Pashley Way, Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex. No injuries were sustained to the pilot of Cessna G-BPAX (the sole person on board); Diamond Star G-CDEK was empty (unoccupied) at the time of the incident. According to the summary of the official AAIB report:

"The pilot of G-BPAX reported that when starting the engine with the throttle set near to its idle position, it increased speed rapidly to its maximum of about 2,500 rpm. The aircraft then travelled forward and the pilot was unable to stop it using the brakes or control its direction. After travelling approximately 90 feet, G-BPAX collided with G-CDEK, which was parked. The pilot of G-BPAX was uninjured and vacated the aircraft. The pilot was unsure of the reason for the accident. The braking system was subsequently confirmed by an engineer as being serviceable."

Nature of damage sustained to airframe: Per the AAIB report "Tail section severed". The damage sustained was presumably enough to render the airframe as "damaged beyond economic repair", as the registration G-CDEK was cancelled by the CAA on 20-08-2010 as "Permanently Withdrawn From Use"
