The aircraft was approaching to land into a 15 knot wind, with a slight crosswind component from the left. At about 60 feet above ground, the wind suddenly dropped completely, probably due to terrain and buildings. As the pilot yawed the nose of the aircraft to the right to line up with the strip the right wing stalled. The aircraft entered an incipient spin and impacted the ground nose first, approximately 100 metres to the right of the strip.
