Written off (destroyed) 17 October 2007 when crashed at the disused Flixton Airfield, near Bungay, Suffolk: Engine stopped during Licence Proficiency Check, aircraft rolled over during subsequent run on landing. One of the two person on board sustained a minor injury. According to the following excerpt from the official AAIB report into the accident:

"The pilot and examiner were carrying out a practice engine failure as part of a Licence Proficiency Check, when the engine stopped. The examiner took control and made an engine-off landing during which the skids dug into soft ground, causing the aircraft to roll on its side. The cause of the engine failure has not been identified but was probably due to mishandling of the throttle. A mechanical failure cannot be ruled out as the operator did not provide maintenance records for the aircraft".

Nature of Damage to airframe: Per the AAIB report "Aircraft destroyed". As a result, the US Registration N276SA was cancelled by the FAA on 9 February 2010
