Investigating agency: NTSB
Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
Narrative:
The home-built experimental airplane was performing touch and go landings. One witness, who was located on airport property, observed the airplane flying "very low" to the ground at a "high rate of speed" (in ground effect) parallel to the runway. As the airplane reached the end of the runway, it "climbed steeply," started a left turn, and "spun" nose first into the ground. In a written statement, the 389-hour private pilot reported that he did "not have any recollection of the accident due to a head injury and/or medications." An FAA inspector, who examined the wreckage at the accident site, reported that the horizontal stabilator and electric trim for pitch control did not exhibit pre-impact anomalies. Additionally, a check of flight control cable continuity did not reveal abnormalities other than impact damage.
Probable Cause: The pilot's failure to maintain control and sufficient airspeed while performing an abrupt pull-up manuever after takeoff, which resulted in an inadvertent stall/spin.
