The sad ending of the J-252. During take-off it suffered a bird -strike, so the pilot decided to abort take off. Unfortunately, he missed the arresting cable and overran the runway ending up in one the many ditches outside the airfield. Sadly the pilot was killed. The special tail to commemorate 40 years of 322 sqn was already painted over, but parts of it appered after the crash
