Mainair Pegasus Quik G-CCHO was written off (damaged beyond repair) in a landing accident at Sutton Meadows Airfield, near Ely, Cambridgeshire, on 19 September 2019.

"While practising circuit flying, the aircraft landed heavily, the nosewheel collapsed and the aircraft turned over. The aircraft was extensively damaged; however, the instructor and student were not injured".

Aircraft deemed damaged beyond economic repair, and was de-registered on 6 July 2020 as "Permanently Withdrawn From Use"
