Written off (damaged beyond repair) after mid-air breakup at 600 meters altitude after launch from Skejby, Denmark on 18/8/1992. The pilot conducted a light pull-up with 140 km/t and the central wing broke up and separated. Investigations revealed that the gluing surface had had only 25% due to manufacturing failure 35 years earlier. Due to the construction it was impossible to inspect that gluing surface.
