The SF25 departed Grefath for a local flight. The aircraft has been observed over the southern part of Roermond proceeding from east to west. The aircraft alternately executed steep climbing and descending manoeuvres and turns with varying engine noise. The final part of the flight was performed on a very low altitude, just a few meters above the rooftop of the nearby houses, in a left turn of approximately 180 degrees. After this turn the aircraft crashed in an undeveloped open terrain.
The Safety Board concludes that the most probable cause of the accident is that the pilot became incapacitated during flight and consequently was unable to control the aircraft properly.
