Turbulence and high usage were given as the probable cause. Considering the necessary re-winging of the aircraft to be an unwarrantable expense, the RNZAF retired them in 1994, replacing them with the Aermacchi MB339-CB. Similar problems with the Strikemaster led the air force of Ecuador to ground their fleet of the aircraft for months at a time while causes were identified and corrected, where possible. On 5 October 2006 a BAC 167 Strikemaster aircraft, registered VH-AKY, took off from Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia for a 25-minute adventure flight with one passenger. The flight was to include high level aerobatics and a low level simulated strike routine. Two persons were killed when the aircraft broke up in the air 20 km north east of Bathurst. Separation of the right wing was precipitated by pre-existing fatigue cracking in the right wing upper main spar attachment lug. A BAC Strikemaster crashed into the Hudson River several hundred yards north of the Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge near Kingston, NY at approximately 1330 hours EST on 26 February 2011 while making a low-pass at the pilot's home airport en route to the Columbia County Airport in Ghent, NY. The plane originated its flight in Nashville, TN area with a fuel stop in Johnstown, PA.
