After becoming airborne the aircraft proceeded to fly over a nearby town before turning to head back towards the strip. Witnesses report that when the aircraft was about two kilometres south of the strip, the wings appeared to "flap" and the aircraft descended rapidly before tumbling into the ground. An inspection of the wreckage found that the fabric on the wings had decayed and was generally of low strength. It was apparent that the wings had lost their rigidity after the fabric became detached.
