Mainair Sports Pegasus Quik G-TBJP: Written off (damaged beyond repair) in a take-off accident at Sywell Airfield, Hall Farm, Sywell, Northamptonshire on 28 January 2024. The incident was the subject of an AAIB Correspondence only Report, published on 11 April 2024, and the following is the summary from the AAIB Report:

"Just before rotation on the takeoff roll the aircraft slewed to the left then started to roll right. The instructor needed both hands to try and correct the roll and was unable to close the throttle and abort the takeoff. It is likely the student made inputs on the controls which increased the difficulty for the instructor to recover the attitude, and the aircraft toppled onto its side. Although the student did not recall touching the brakes, marks on the runway indicated they may have been inadvertently applied during the takeoff roll."

=Damage Sustained to airframe=
Although the above AAIB report does not specify the damage sustained, it was presumably severe enough to warrant that the airframe was "damaged beyond economic repair" as the registration was cancelled (and the airframe de-registered) by the CAA on 6 March 2024 as "Permanently withdrawn from use"
