Narrative:
Written off (damaged beyond repair) 21.08.2014: Whilst flying at circuit height, the pilot experienced severe vibration, probably from the engine/propeller. He performed a forced landing in a field but overran into a hedge, causing extensive damage. It is possible that damage to the propeller may have been responsible for the vibration

G-MYPC sustained damage to the fuselage pod and boom, wings, landing gear and propeller. All of which were enough to withdraw the aircraft from use, and the registration G-MYPC was cancelled by the CAA on 30.09.2014 as "destroyed"
