Narrative:
The pilot landed directly into the setting sun, reducing his forward vision, and the aircraft touched down off the runway onto the rough grass area to the left and then rolled into an aircraft in the parking area causing severe airframe damage to both aircraft.
The aircraft has since been repaired and is still airworthy, despite the 2005 AAIB report considering it was beyond economic repair having suffered Wing, tailplane and rudder damage and a twisted fuselage.
