Written off during a flight to its home base: the pilot was forced to make a forced landing short of the airfield at Eglington, Londonderry, Northern Ireland after the engine failed at 700 feet while in the circuit. It came down in shallow water on the mud flats of Lough Foyle, the pilot escaped without injury. An RAF Chinook performed the recovery and set down the intact airframe on the grass at Eglinton, the aircraft was then acquired by the North Wales Military Aviation Services, Hawarden, Cheshire for possible rebuild, but was reduced to spares and produce, due to water corrosion damage.

Registration G-BYED formally cancelled by the UK Civil Aviation Authority 30/12/2004 as "permanently withdrawn from use". By 2006, the nose section was sold to a private collector in the Cranwell, Lincolnshire area
