Summary

The pilot had sprayed the paddock using a series of runs in an east-west direction, parallel to power lines along the property boundary. He then decided to do a clean-up run in a north-south direction, but forgot about the presence of the power lines. During the pull-up at the end of the run the aircraft flew into the wires and subsequently struck the ground heavily 219 metres further on.
