Destroyed in gale whilst parked but not tied down at Netherthorpe, Nottinghamshire 17/1/1976. Collided with a static caravan on site - no fire. The remains were afterwards acquired by F & H (Aircraft) Ltd. and taken to Sibson, but subsequently, on 27/1/1976 G-ASYN was moved once again to Southend, having been bought by the Rochford Hundred Flying Group who saw it as a source of spares for their Terrier G-ASAK
