The aircraft was being flown between 500 and 1000 feet agl at 60 knots with 20 degree of flap. A mob of sheep was spotted and the pilot turned right to keep them in sight. The stall warning sounded and the pilot noticed a lack of elevator control but did not associate this with a stall. Descent continued while the pilot was engrossed in the elevator problem until the aircraft struck trees in its path. A major portion of the right wing was severed and the aircraft came to rest on its side.
