Summary

Summary

The pilot was carrying out his first cross country flight over unfamiliar terrain. After passing over one of his planned turning points he became concerned about the aircraft's location and decided to follow a road back towards the destination. Enroute the pilot descended the aircraft to read a road sign in an endeavour to establish his location. However, the aircraft struck a power line and subsequently collided with the ground. This accident was not the subject of an on-site investigation.
