NTSB Factual Report

The pilot reported that, during an aerial application flight, he misjudged the approach and did not give enough clearance for power wires. The airplane began to sink and he pulled back on the flight control stick. Subsequently, the airplane aerodynamically stalled into the power wires. The pilot further reported that he did not remember anything else until he awoke in the hospital.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the fuselage, empennage, and both wings.

The pilot reported that there were no preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot’s misjudgment of the approach and his subsequent exceedance of the airplane’s critical angle of attack during an agricultural application flight, which resulted in an aerodynamic stall and collision with power lines.
