On 02/21/1997, she overshot the runway on a rejected takeoff and ended in a marsh area leading to 3 fatalities among her cargo of SL Army soldiers heading to the northern front to do battle with terrorists. She was stripped for viable parts and the rest was put in to base scrapyard for a decade +. At wars end, the SLAF commissioned an artist to make this monument with the cockpit section, one engine and parts from other WFU aircrafts. There are parts from a SF.260 and three CJ-6s here too.
