The pilot had completed three aerial seeding flights over areas In timbered and mountainous terrain In
a light northerly wind. On the fourth flight he was making runs down a slope from north-east to south-west
and, after each run, was repositioning his aircraft at the top of the slope by flying a right hand circuit.
At the end of one run and with only a small area to complete, the pilot decided to make a left turn and a
finishing run up the slope and to leave the area by turning left again. During the final run he became aware
there was Insufficient space to permit the Intended manoeuvre so he turned right toward a lower spur line
but realised he was unlikely to clear this. The pilot operated the dump lever, the aircraft settled Into the
trees with full power applied and fell to the ground, coming to rest Inverted.
