The aircraft veered off the runway and ended up on its belly, the 2 crew were uninjured. The aircraft was used for spares and following sale of the Itavia Herald fleet to British Island Airways (BIA), it was fully stripped of useful parts and broken up in 1974. The wings made their way back to the United Kingdom being stored at Southampton Airport.
