accident took place in Aska, Sodankylš, Finland, where an Ikarus C42-style ultra-light aircraft on floats, owned by private parties, was severely damaged and the pilot was killed. The pilot had taken off from Kitinen river by the center of Sodakylš (the river is situated in the town of Sodankylš), heading to Aska, with the intent to land by the shore at his friend's cabin along the same river. The accident took place as the pilot was circling the landing site. When the pilot flew the second lap into the tailwind and began to turn to the left, the plane suddenly rotated around the longitudinal axis and dove vertically into the ground, and was severely damaged.
