Written off 07.04.2007: The aircraft had been flown from Exeter to Compton Abbas and, after a normal approach, landed on Runway 08. After landing, the aircraft hit a bump in the runway and became airborne again. It touched down again on the nose landing gear, which collapsed, causing damage to the propeller and engine cowling. The two occupants, who were uninjured, vacated the aircraft without difficulty via the cabin doors.

Wreckage still in the hangar at Compton Abbas 25.08.10; apparently not (yet) repaired ("a dismantled fuselage on trestles") and registration G-APXW cancelled by the CAA 14.01.10
