Narrative:
Morane-Saulnier MS.894A Rallye Minerva 220 G-BCAC was damaged landing at Sandown Airfield on 6 May 1990. Another source says that the damage was beyond repair. And that's all I know about this incident. The Rallye's registration was cancelled by the CAA on 18 January 1995 as permanently withdrawn from use. I do not know if there's a connection between the two, but it seems likely.
