Written off (damaged beyond repair) 10/01/1940: Following a territorial surveillance mission, the crew was returning to its base at RAF Sealand, Flintshire. On approach, the visibility was poor due to the night and foggy conditions. The pilot missed the runway, overshot and landed long. After touchdown, the twin engine aircraft was unable to stop within the remaining runway, overrun and collided with a tree. Both crew members were injured while the aircraft was severely damaged.
