Written off (damaged beyond repair) 30-6-1995 when struck by Jodel D.117 G-ATIZ whilst parked at Leicester Airport, Stoughton, Leicestershire. The Piper Cherokee G-ATLW was parked and "empty" with no-one aboard; the Jodel G-ATIZ was landing at Leicester Airport when it bounced on landing, went out of control, ran off the runway, and "clipped" the Piper.

Damage sustained to Piper G-ATLW: Per the AAIB report "Damaged fin and rudder tips; fuselage buckled forward of the fin; right wing broken at the tip, and distorted along the surface, and at the junction with the fuselage". All of which were presumably enough to render the airframe as "damaged beyond economic repair". However, the registration G-ATLW was not cancelled until over four years later, on 16-8-2000, as "destroyed"
