Narrative:
During a routine maintenance inspection on 2 March 1988 numerous creases were found in the surfaces of both wings. In addition, spar cap rivets were found to be damaged by shear load. The damage was indicative of the aircraft having been subjected to excessive positive 'G' loading in flight. The circumstances leading to permanent deformation of the wings were not determined.
