Narrative:
The pilot and passenger were on the final approach to their destination airport, after completing about a 550-nautical mile, cross-country flight in a kit-built airplane. During the approach, the left wing dropped and the airplane entered a steep descending bank before impacting the terrain. The surviving passenger could not recall details of the accident. A postaccident examination of the airframe and engine wreckage did not reveal any abnormalities that would have precluded normal operation.
Probable Cause: The loss of control for undetermined reasons.
