Substantially damaged 07-06-2010 in a take off accident at Leeds/Bradford Airport, Yeadon, West Yorkshire: Aircraft departed from runway 14 and into trees near the boundary fence. No injuries sustained to the two person on board (pilot and one passenger). The airport was closed for over three hours while emergency services attended the incident, re-opening around 20:00. According to the following excerpt from the official AAIB report: "During the takeoff run, the pilot judged that the aircraft would not accelerate to V1 and decided to reject the takeoff. As he tried to stop the aircraft, both brakes failed, the right brake caught fire and the aircraft ran off the end of the runway. The brakes were probably on, at least partially, during the takeoff run." Nature of Damage sustained to airframe: Per the AAIB report "Significant damage to the wings and nose, detached nose landing gear, and collapsed right main landing gear". N646VP arrived at Robin Hood Airport, Doncaster, from Leeds, on 08-09-2010 on a low loader for repair by Kinch Aviation.

Departed Doncaster at 09:38 on 17-01-12 to Cannes (its original intended destination, some 18 months earlier!)
