Narrative:
Ex-F-BHXY; first UK civil registered as G-AZFK on 22/9/1971. Written off (damaged beyond repair) 14/4/1973 when crashed at Doncaster Aerodrome, Doncester, South Yorkshire. According to the official AAIB report into the accident:

"At approximately 200 feet, while making an approach to land on runway 05 at Doncaster Aerodrome, the aircraft was seen to turn to the right and enter a spin from which it did not recover. The aircraft was destroyed by ground impact; the commander was seriously injured and the instructor was killed . There was no fire.

It is concluded that the accident was due to loss of control during a turn made with insufficient speed, the aircraft being too low for recovery from the ensuing spin".

Registration G-AZFK cancelled by the CAA 11/2/1975 as "destroyed"
