NTSB Factual Report

The pilot reported that during the approach to land, the biplane was low and to the right of the runway centerline. He further reported that to recover from the low altitude he added power, but the biplane struck a tree, which impaired its controllability. Subsequently, the biplane glided into small tree(s) and brush coming to rest nose down.

The biplane sustained substantial damage to all four wings and struts.

The pilot reported that there were no pre impact mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airframe or engine that would have precluded normal operation.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot’s unstabilized approach, which resulted in the biplane being low and striking trees.
