The aircraft was landing behind a HS-748, over the threshold with the 748 still on the runway. The right wing dropped and the pilot found the ailerons ineffective. He was too low to go around so the pilot closed throttles and put the aircraft firmly on the runway. The right landing gear leg became detached and the aircraft veered off the runway.

The remains of the Trislander were sold to Aurigny Air Services for spares in 1983.
