History of this aircraft

G-CJIC was built in 2019 (although first registered on 20.7.2016 - presumably while still under construction) and had two owners "from new". The damage sustained was presumably severe enough to render the aircraft as "damaged beyond economic repair", as the registration G-CJIC was cancelled (and the airframe de-registered) by the CAA on 17 January 2024 as "Permanently withdrawn from use"
