Narrative:
Written off (damaged beyond repair) 19.8.1972. According to a rough translation (Dutch into English) of the accident report:

"08/19/1972 PH-AFB MS.892A Rallye Commodore 150 wrecked at Hoogeveen. When the grass was mowed, Cessna 172 PH-HGV was parked . That is an area where you can, of course, not mow the grass. After landing, the pilot of PH-AFB taxied to the apron and passed the uncut grass area. There was a steel lying beam on the ground, hidden in the long grass (probably used to tow the mower). He rode with the nose wheel on to steel beam, and the nose wheel leg was so damaged that repair was not economic. Read the rest of the story in '75 years Dutch Aircraft Registers' and shudder!"
