Narrative:
Crashed onto moorland on the Dalreavoch Estate, Rogart near Braegrudie, Sutherland after the pilot ejected due to an engine fire. Caused by a fracture in the combustion chamber which burnt through the casing and ignited fuel in the fuselage tanks

Pilot - Flt. Lt. D. Steve Griggs - ejected [see also 25th May 1982, for an accident involving the same pilot]. A week or two before relinquishing command of No 14 Squadron in June 1983, David was taken by surprise at a squadron ‘beer-fest’ when presented with a small part of XX760. His ground crew explained that they had searched through the few bits of debris recovered in the hope of finding the piece with his name and pennant but to no avail; he would have to make do with the tail’s ‘AA’ insignia.
