Witnesses stated that they saw either pieces of the airplane or the airplane wings separate from the airplane. The first witness stated that he heard a low flying airplane flying toward the southwest and then saw some pieces of the airplane falling into an orchard just south of his home; he then lost sight of the airplane. The second witness saw the airplane flying southeast and banking right. The second witness stated that when the airplane leveled off, the left wing came off the airplane followed by the right wing. The airplane then spun, or barrel rolled into a field.
Both wings were located about ¼ mi east of the main wreckage. Pieces of the internal wing structure were found along the ground for about 150 ft southeast of the wings.
