Summary

When the aircraft arrived over Hughenden it descended to a height of about 400 feet over houses on the southern and north-eastern areas of the town, then climbed slightly and flew at a low height across the town towards the golf course. The aircraft, on two occasions, flew at a height of about 300 feet over the golf course, in the vicinity of the club house, then climbed, circled to the left and descended to a very low height over a group of people who were playing golf. The aircraft then climbed steeply to approximately 200 feet at which height the pilot apparently lost control of the aircraft and it stalled, yawed sharply and dived to the ground. The Initial impact was taken on the nose and starboard main wheel and the aircraft skidded for a distance of 169 feet before coming to rest.
