The aircraft had been brought to Cheepie by the owner, who was attending a "fly-in". It was lent to the pilot so that he could carry out circuits. The first take-off was to the north, and about three circuits were completed, with landings into the south, before the pilot decided to make the final landing into the north. On final approach, the aircraft struck telephone wires, nosed over and landed inverted. The wires were about six metres above ground level and the pilot had not been aware of their existence before the accident.
