On 5 February 1989, while being flown solo by Charles Shea-Simmons for Proteus Petroleum Aviation Ltd, the aircraft was written off when, following engine failure and structural damage to one wing, it flipped onto it's back during an emergency landing, with the pilot managing to escape before the aircraft was destroyed by fire. Registration G-AJHO was cancelled by the CAA as aircraft "destroyed" on 31 March 1989.
