During September 2007 G-ANDE was damaged in a forced landing near Redhill when it hit a hay bale. The aircraft was then stored until acquired by the owner of Aero Legends during early 2014. A decision was made to rebuild the aircraft with an expected completion date in 2018. It will be finished in wartime R.A.F. camouflage and join the Aero Legends fleet after completion.
