VH-IQY was working, in conjunction with a number of stockmen on horses or motorcycles, to muster cattle some 20 km northwest of the station homestead. At about 1040 hours, the aircraft made a number of steep dives to tree-level, apparently to move cattle adjacent to a creek. After the last dive, it was observed to pullup to an estimated height of 400 feet, then stall and dive to the ground.
