Written off 17.5.1982: Crashed killing the pilot after losing control during a barrel roll over the airfield at Linton-on-Ouse, North Yorkshire. The pilot had been practising for a forthcoming aerobatics competition (The Wright Jubilee Trophy). The pilot (Flt Lt R A Rogers) did not eject, and was killed when the aircraft impacted with the ground. The official MoD/RAF Board of Inquiry blamed the crash on pilot error (distraction and/or disorientation), and the aircraft entering into a barrel roll at an altitude too low for a safe recovery.
