At the end of an aerobatic display, the pilot performed an inverted circuit, rolling upright as the airstrip was sighted on final approach. On short final approach, the aircraft descended below the desired flight path and the pilot applied power. The aircraft responded, but the right gear leg contacted a powerline 5 metres above the ground, causing it to strike the ground in a steep nose-down angle before coming to rest inverted.
