Narrative:
The student pilot on board G-AYYF was flying solo, and undertaking a cross-country navigation exercise. Aircraft was destroyed in forced landing at Abercynafon Farm, TalyBont-on-Usk, Powys, when flew into high ground in adverse weather.

The aircraft was advised by Air Traffic Control to approach Haverfordwest from 2,500 feet, but the pilot drifted off course, and flew into a hillside that was 2,906 feet high. The hillside was not visible to the pilot, due to increasing cloud build up, and a lowering of the cloud base. There was no fire on impact, and the pilot (the sole person on board) sustained only minor injuries

Registration G-AYYF belatedly cancelled by the CAA 18/5/1999 (nine years later!) as "destroyed"
