Remark Photographer
75-0294 / DM (cn A10-0043) The pilot was expected to perform one looping. Instead he did three and came out too low. The tail hit the ground with the pictured result. The pilot sadly died. I have never been able to find out the cause of the accident.

You can't figure out the cause? You said it in your description, LOL!!! What a sad event for the pilot to be killed.
