Narrative:This is an accident about which I can find nothing beyond the brief entry in BCAR 1919-1999. It says that Robin DR.400 G-BAMT crashed and was damaged beyond repair at Cudham, Kent (the village to the east of Biggin Hill) on 8 January 1978. Its registration was cancelled by the CAA on 24 April 1978 as 'permanently withdrawn from use'
|Date:||Sunday 8 January 1978|

One source (see link #5) "(reb Kemble) rest 1/05 (on reb Membury)" which can be taken to read "under rebuild at Kemble, Gloucestershire" and then "under rebuild at Membury, Berkshire". What adds to the mystery is that the registration was restored on 14 January 2005 to a new owner in Hungerford, Berkshire...only to be cancelled - and the airframe de-registered - for the second (and presumably final) time on 26 July 2013.
