Damage sustained to airframe: Per the official AAIB report "extensive damage to wings, fin and rudder; propeller bent, and engine shock loaded". Despite being damaged beyond economical repair, the ownership of G-BUCS was transferred to London Ashford Airport Ltd, at Lydd, Ashford, Kent, presumably for use as a grounded instructional airframe. This little Cessna has seen better days and was permanently withdrawn from use. De-registered on those grounds on 16-3-2011. Owned by London Ashford Airport Ltd., and was still extant at Lydd Airport, Ashford, Kent on 13-1-2012.
