Narrative:
Ex-G-BXLZ (first registered 24.06.1997): to PH-ZZZ 02.12.2003. Written off 09.12.2004: About 15 minutes into the flight a loud bang was heard from the engine compartment and the engine began to run roughly. With limited power available, the pilot initiated a diversion to RAF Linton-on-Ouse. The pilot initiated a flare with excess speed and a possible throttle restriction which may have prevented the throttle from returning to idle.

The pilot was unable to land in the distance available and initiated a go-around, but when the engine did not respond the pilot carried out a forced landing in a field beyond the runway end. The aircraft hit a hedge and inverted, causing minor injuries to the two occupants. The cause of the rough running engine had not been determined

Aircraft presumably written off (damaged beyond repair) as the Netherlands registration PH-ZZZ was cancelled on 10.01.2005
