        OMG, how weird! I'm plagued with very strange coincidences, myself. This one is one of the weirdest: some years ago I was reading about a carpenter who was involved in the repair of Miles aircraft. The next morning I went to a show at Shuttleworth and he was parked next to me!!

              I agree Chad. Not seen any other credible reports of such an incident this year. No mention at all on the WIX Forum. Looks like someone has erroneously reported an old incident as current on the site.

                Old news, although to be fair this aircraft did come a cropper twice with the apparent same issue: running out of fuel with a full tank...
                If anybody ever tells you anything about an aeroplane which is so bloody complicated you can't understand it, take it from me: It's all balls. RJM.
