Narrative:
EV-97 TeamEuroStar UK, G-CETT written off (damaged beyond repair) due to a heavy landing and contact with a metal gate post, Carrickmore Airfield, County Tyrone, Omagh, Northern Ireland, 10 April 2019. The official AAIB report into the accident was published on 13 June 2019, and the following is an excerpt from it...

"EV-97 TeamEuroStar UK, G-CETT
Heavy landing and contact with metal gate post, Carrickmore Airfield, County Tyrone, 10 April 2019.

The pilot was making an approach to land on Runway 08 at Carrickmore Airfield when he encountered turbulent air. The aircraft began to sink which the pilot corrected by apply-ing more power. The aircraft then encountered lift before once again sinking towards the runway. Fearing that the aircraft could stall, the pilot pushed the stick forward and the aircraft landed heavily. The aircraft slewed to the right contacting a metal gate post and damaging the aircraft beyond economical repair. Although the pilot felt there was little more he could have done to prevent the heavy landing, he did comment that perhaps committing to a go-around when the sink was first encountered might have been a better option."

Damage sustained to airframe: Per the above AAIB report "Damaged beyond economical repair". As a result, the registration G-CETT was cancelled on 10 May 2019. According to a posting on a facebook group for EV-97 owners by the registered owner of G-CETT (see link #3) "Hi All, My insurance has been settled for G-CETT and I have kept ownership of salvage to dispose of myself. If anyone looking for spare parts please PM me to discuss..."
