Airplane damage: Substantial
Location:East Midlands Airport, Castle Donnington, Derbyshire -   United Kingdom
Phase: Standing
Departure airport:East Midlands Airport (EMA/EGNX)
Destination airport:
Substantially damaged by gales on the night of 1-2.1.76 whist parked outdoors at East Midlands Airport (EMA/EGNX). However, presumably repaired in 1976-77, as reported flying again on 26.4.1978 in the Rotterdam/The Hague (EHRD) area. Sold on to new owners on 10.12.1980, and again on 21.5.1986

By 1987 reported as a grounded instructional airframe ("Bedford: In the College near Cauldwell Street are G-AVCC Cessna 172 and XM473 JP T3A which is marked G-TINY.") which would imply that the civil registration G-AVCC was cancelled by the CAA on 8.3.1988 as "destroyed" as a result of being scrapped rather than as the result of a flying accident.
