Summary

The aircraft departed Ocean View Farm, near Esperance, for Jandakot at 0850. Shortly after 1100 the aircraft was observed flying in and out of cloud at a very low height, less than 100 feet above ground level, as it circled Narrogin townsite. At approximately 1115 the aircraft crashed in a farm paddock between Narrogin townsite and Narrogin airstrip. There were no witnesses to the crash.

The weather condition at the time of the accident was poor with fog and low cloud in the area. The aircraft collided with the ground in a near vertical attitude. The landing gear and flaps were extended, the throttle was closed and the generator and battery switches were selected off at impact.
