Narrative:
The aircraft was making an approach to land on Runway 26. During the flare the aircraft rolled uncontrollably to the right and struck the ground. The aircraft came to rest inverted beside the runway, close to the fire training facility. The most probable reason for the uncommanded roll is that G‑BRWO had flown through the wake vortex generated by a Sikorsky S76 which had landed immediately before it.

Damage sustained to airframe: Right wing detached and forward fuselage severely damaged. As a result, registration G-BRWO cancelled by the UK Civil Aviation authority 5/5/2010 as "aircraft permanently withdrawn from use"
