Narrative:A witness traveling south on Kansas State Highway 14 from Beloit, Kansas, said he saw the airplane "flying very low, north of the highway, like the pilot was trying to land. The plane then rose rapidly when it got close to the highway, as if to rise above the power lines. The plane made an abrupt dive and crashed into a field at a sharp angle." Airplane records showed the pilot's last flight in the airplane was on May 1, 1999. Federal Aviation Administration medical records indicated the pilot's last medical certificate was issued on August 31, 1994. An examination of the airplane revealed no anomalies. CAUSE: the inadvertent stall. Factors relating to the accident were the pilot's low altitude, his abrupt pull up, the power lines, and his lack of recent flying experience.
