Narrative:The pilot purchased the one-seat airplane and had never flown this make and model before. A witness standing at the airport's midfield reported the airplane's takeoff appeared normal, and the airplane entered the airport's traffic pattern and made one bounced landing. Witnesses stated the airplane then made several traffic patterns, and each time around, the airplane got lower and slower. According to a witness, on the airplane's last pattern, it turned base and was very slow with the nose high, and when it turned final, it spun about half a turn to the left and dove straight into the ground. Examination of the accident site revealed the airplane came to rest nose-down approximately 500 feet short of the runway 34 threshold. Examination of the airframe and powerplant revealed no evidence of mechanical malfunction.
