Written off (damaged beyond repair) 27-08-1990 at Brough Aerodrome, Brough, East Riding of Yorkshire. According to the following extract from the official AAIB report into the accident:

"The aircraft started its take off roll on a grass strip, and during this roll, the aircraft crossed a tarmac runway. The nose was felt to rise slightly, and the nose wheel assembly detached from the aircraft. The nose of the aircraft then lowered, and the nose leg dug into the grass, bringing the aircraft to a halt

The nose leg was found to have been folded back under the aircraft, and the damage sustained was consistent with the nose wheel striking the edge of a tarmac runway."

Damage sustained to the airframe: Per the AAIB report "damage to nose leg and propeller". Presumably, the damage sustained was enough to render the aircraft as "damaged beyond economic repair", as the registration G-ATHG was cancelled by the CAA on 29-04-1991 as "destroyed"
