Written off (damaged beyond repair) when crashed at Kingsland, 3 miles North West of Leominster, Herefordshire, on 25/10/1970. The CAA were notified on 15/3/1971, and registration G-AIJZ was cancelled as "PWFU" ("Permanently Withdrawn From Use") on 1/11/1971, just over one year after its accident.

Along with the fuselage of Cessna 150 G-ATML (ex Staverton Flying School) that was blown against hangar doors, the wreck was sold to Shobdon Aviation and was part of their collection of wrecks at Shobdon in 1974.
