Investigating agency: NTSB
Narrative:
The pilot said while he was at 3,000 feet and conducting a slow flight maneuver, the airplane's right wing dropped suddenly and the airplane entered a spin. The pilot said he tried to recover but couldn't stop the right turning spin. The pilot said that about 2 1/2 spins from the tree tops, he pulled back on the stick. The airplane's nose came up and slowed just prior to the impact with the trees. An examination of the airplane revealed no anomalies.

Probable Cause: The inadvertent stall/spin encountered by the pilot during a slow flight maneuver. Factors relating to this accident were the low airspeed and the trees.
