Narrative:
Sonaca 200 G-LKAM: Ex-OO-XSA (Belgian Registry), first flown as such 17 May 2019. First registered as G-LKAM 6 August 2019. Ninth Sonaca 200 to be built, but the first on the UK register. Substantially damaged in an accident at Solent Airport, Lee-on-Solent, Hampshire. According to the AAIB Correspondence only report: "The aircraft crossed the threshold [at Solent Airport, Hampshire] at about 65 knots in a crosswind from the left. Right rudder and left aileron were used to ‘kick off’ the drift and the throttle was moved to idle during the round out. After touching down on the main gear, a rapid pitch down then caused the nose gear to collapse and damage to the propeller."

According to the "planefinder" website (see link #3) this aircraft has no recorded flights after 11:18am on 4 June 2020
