Written off on 3/6/70, after the left wing failed during practice for the 1970 World Aerobatic Championships at RAF Hullavington. The pilot was the late Neil Williams, an experienced test pilot, and his account of the incident is well worth a read! See http://historic.aerobatics.org.uk/repeats/zlin_wing_failure.htm.
