Summary

The pilot reported that he was aware of the location of the three-cable powerline during his spray runs. He had completed three runs under the line and was conducting a clean up run at the opposite end of the paddock when he collided with the wires during a pullup. The wire deflector snapped and the top of the vertical stabilizer and rudder were torn off. The pilot was able to land the aircraft safely. He indicated that he had forgotten about the location of the line when he moved to the other end of the paddock and it was no longer necessary to fly under them.
