Ex-G-AXZG (12-3-1970 to 28-8-1981); later became RAF GSA 101, then BGA 1621. Written off 12-6-1995: Positive control checks were carried out on the glider. During the aero-tow ground roll the left aileron connection came undone, allowing the control to float free and vibrate, causing the wing to flutter. The pilot released the glider and turned back to the airfield, but during the turn, the glider spun and crashed into trees. The pilot (the sole person on board) was killed.
