Narrative:
Destroyed 11/10/1986 when crashed back onto the runway at Barton while trying to pick up a banner, killing the pilot (the sole person on board). The AAIB report notes that the aircraft flew into the ground from a low altitude, and that the probable cause was the banner towing rope wrapping itself around the right tail plane.

Damage sustained to airframe: As confirmed in the AAIB report "aircraft destroyed". However, the registration G-BFMS was only belatedly cancelled by the CAA on 30/1/1992 - six years later
