ZS-WXH lost directional control on take off from FAVG (Virginia) 1 April 1992 and was scrapped. Somewhere I still have the data plate which was donated to me. For a while, part of the structure of WXH was used as an awning outside a restaurant which was located on the Virginia circle road.
Arguably, this was the first light aircraft that my son Air Bear got into, as he used to play in the fuselage at age 2, which was resting on the grass near to NAC's Northern hangar !

ZS-WYB also had a takeoff accident. This was at FARG (Rustenburg) in 1998. I suspect it was written off ? ..can anyone confirm

Edited to correct year to 1998 .. and exact date apparently 13 June 1998 as per pm from Swivel
