The RAF Battle of Britain flight MK19 doing an airtest last week lost it's canopy, or at least 1/2 of it, the parts it lost went over the top and struck the tailplane on the other side going through the leading edge, before departing... Aircraft recovered ok but will be probably out for the season and I believe the tailplane has already been removed at Coningsby and has been sent for repair /reskinning.

There are some other factors as well, but until they come out I will not comment ok http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Could have been a lot worse, at least no-one was injured.

At first I thought I was going to read that the aircraft was lost or worse, that someone was killed. It turned out very well considering what could have happened.
