Narrative:
The accident occurred at the end of a routine private flight in benign conditions near Stoke Golding Airfield. Witness evidence suggests that the aircraft entered a stall followed by an incipient spin after entering the circuit. The pilot may have mistaken a mown grass strip to the north of the airfield for the runway and on realising this attempted to correct his approach path or go-around, during which the aircraft entered a stall. The pilot and passenger suffered fatal injuries.
