Narrative:
Written off (damaged beyond repair) 04.09.1958: The aircraft was returning to Luton from the SBAC show at Farnborough when the pilot received three separate fire warnings. He elected to make an emergency landing in a field near Twyford, Berkshire, but the aircraft struck some fences either side of a road, and burst into flames. The pilot escaped without injury. The fire warnings had been spurious, being caused by defective insulation on a connector which had admitted moisture
