Narrative:
Substantially damaged (and presumably written off at a later date) 20/11/1984 when crashed during take off after a practice forced landing at Tillingham, 3 miles (4.8 km) from Bradwell-on-Sea, Maldon District, Essex. According to the following extract from the official AAIB report into the accident:

"The pilot executed a practice forced landing on a small, prepared landing strip at Tillingham, 3 miles (4.8 km) from Bradwell-on-Sea, Maldon District, Essex. After landing at approximately one-third of the distance of the 400 metre airstrip, the pilot applied full power, retracted the flaps and attempted to take off but the rear fuselage struck a fence causing the aircraft to touch down again and nosed over into a ditch. Pilot and passenger sustained minor injuries. Aircraft substantially damaged"

Damage sustained to airframe: Per the AAIB report ,"Aircraft substantially damaged". Presumably the aircraft was deemed to have been "damaged beyond economical repair" at a later date, as the registration G-AWLJ was only cancelled by the CAA on 3/8/1994, almost ten years later
