Narrative:
Substantially damaged at Southend Airport, Essex 04-01-1989. Port wing ripped off, when DHC-6 G-JEAC suffered brake failure and collided with it while parked. Presumably repaired, as the registered owner kept the aircraft until selling it on to a new owner on 17-10-1994, over five years later
