did a wheels up after losing power, picture does not do the damage justice, photo in Aeroplane Monthly shows it has creased the fuselage behind the wing badly, so i would say its back is broken too...

Just along the road from me.

Duxford has had a bit of a rough time over the last couple of years.

Do hope it gets better.

The first one was written off at Denham, where I used to fly from. Sounds like poor engine managment again!

I'd never join a club that would have ME as a member!!.

Such a shame...Does anyone have any more pics of the scene? I hope they get her flying again.
