Yes, as I said in my earlier post:

Whatever it was that happened, it doesn't seem to have attracted the attention of the AAIB or the CAA.
There don't seem to have been many recorded sightings of the C421 - presumably it was a hangar queen for several years while the insurance settlement was being negotiated.

No, it was on the UK register, as was the company's later PA-32.

Incidentally, the Golden Eagle wasn't "written off" - it's still G-registered with a new owner, albeit based in Portugal.
