HISTORY OF THE FLIGHT

On July 9, 1996, at 1940 eastern daylight time, a George Evenson Cuby, N1035W, registered to private individuals, crashed while maneuvering at a low altitude near Hawkinsville, Georgia, while on a Title 14 CFR Part 91 personnel flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed at the time and no flight plan was filed. The private-rated pilot, and student-rated passenger were fatally injured and the aircraft was destroyed. The flight departed the Hawkinsville, Georgia airport, the same day, about 1915.

A witness stated that the airplane had been circling the area at very low altitude for several minutes before the accident. The passenger seated in the rear seat was leaning out of the aircraft waving to the witness. The pilot, who was flying the aircraft from the front seat, placed the aircraft in a steep bank and the airplane stalled. The airplane descended uncontrolled and impacted the terrain in nose down attitude.
