Witnesses reported seeing the airplane flying at a low altitude over an open field. During one low altitude maneuver, the airplane entered a steep right bank and rolled inverted. Thereafter, the airplane nose dived into the ground. The engine sounded as though its speed (rpm) increased during the descent. An examination of the accident site and wreckage indicated a ground scar consistent with a steep nose down impact. The wreckage was examined by an FAA inspector. Fuel was found in a fuel tank and in the engine's dual carburetors. There was no fire or evidence of mechanical malfunction. The reason for the pilot's loss of control and uncontrolled descent was not determined.
Probable Cause: Loss of aircraft control while maneuvering for undetermined reasons.
