On 8 July 2013 and 4 July 2014, respectively, two aeroplanes of the make and model Apex DR400/140B were seriously damaged by fire. In both cases, the fire started during taxi after landing, on the left-hand side of the aeroplanes, destroying the left-hand wing. Since the two fires seemed of a similar nature and both aeroplanes were operated by the same flying club, Dutch Safety Board decided to combine the two investigations into the cause of these fires.
