Narrative:
The airline transport pilot was fatally injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal
Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

According to a pilot flying an RV4 and data derived from Mode S transponder signals, the
EA300 departed about 1609 from Bourland Field (50F), near Cresson, Texas. About 1614, the
RV4 departed 50F to rejoin with the EA300 and the two airplanes proceeded to fly in loose
formation between 2,400 and 3,200 ft mean sea level (msl).

About 1625, the two pilots coordinated to separate. The RV4 descended to the southeast
toward 50F for landing, while the EA300 climbed to the northwest for aerobatic maneuvers.
The last Mode S derived data of the EA300 occurred at 1628:20 as the airplane descended
through about 4,300 ft msl.

About 3.5 miles northwest of 50F, the airplane impacted terrain with a wings level, nose down
attitude and a low forward groundspeed. The tail section was twisted slightly left of the
fuselage and both wings were crushed downward. Initial examination did not reveal any
anomalies with the flight control system. The airplane was recovered for further examination.
