ZE341 first flown at BAe Warton 28/10/1987, delivered to the RAF 06/11/1987. Written off (damaged beyond repair) 05-01-2011: Suffered a major bird strike and diverted to RAF Leeming, North Yorkshire, taking the arrestor cable on landing. The pilot was left in a critical situation if he had needed to eject as a large piece of the canopy was jammed between his lap and the cockpit structure. As the type was planned to be retired by March 2011 it was not repaired, being downgraded from Cat.3 (Repairable) to Cat.5 (Scrap) on 24-01-2011 and "reduced to Produce" at Leeming in March-April 2011
