Narrative:
Written off (damaged beyond repair) 3 May 2014: Whilst landing at Rendcomb Airfield, The Whiteway, near Cirencester, Gloucestershire, the aircraft bounced and flipped inverted, causing extensive damage. The pilot acknowledges that he had failed to set up the aircraft’s attitude correctly on landing.

G-AHVU sustained Damage to propeller, cowls, wings, fuel tank, rear fuselage and empennage. As a result, the registration of this Tiger Moth was cancelled on 21 November 2014 as "destroyed". However, the registration was restored 10 July 2015 to a new owner in St. Columb, near Truro, Cornwall, presumably for rebuild
