Written off (damaged beyond repair) 28/12/1971 when crashed at Crossfield Farm, Calverley, near Pudsey, West Yorkshire. According to a contemporary report in "Yorkshire Air News" (January 1972):

"Cessna 150 G-ATNC, belonging to Mr B. Foster, turned over shortly after landing at his private strip ln Pudsey on the 28th December, 1971. The aircraft came to rest in a rhubarb field, where it was retrieved from the following day by Yorkshire Light Aircraft". The Cessna arrived at Leeds-Bradford on 29/12/1971 for damage assessment, and left on 21/2/1972.

According to an update in "Yorkshire Air News" January 1973: "CALVERLEY (Crossfield Farrn). Was used by Cessna 150F GAINC until it crashed. here". Aircraft apparently not repaired ("beyond economic repair"); however, the registration G-ATNC was belatedly cancelled by the CAA on 16/8/1973 as "P.W.F.U." ("Permanently Withdrawn From Use")
