Yes, a real shame, thankfully no major injuries to the chaps but the Moth's going to take a long time to get better: http://www.northern-scot.co.uk/News/Two ... 082012.htm

The Comet nose also survives, it was displayed at gatwick for a while, but is now in the Middle East at Sharjah in the Al Mahatah Museum. Interesting story regarding when it arrived - part of the u/c failed on the grass runway, but as it was on RAF charge, the MOD apparently had to repair it. The story was that the sale clause for the Shackleton passed ownership to the Collection when it was on finals to the airfield!
