Summary

As a four-person skydiving team exited the aircraft, the reserve parachute of one of the team members deployed and tangled around the tailplane. The tail section then separated from the fuselage and the jumper's parachute separated from the tail. A section of the left elevator remained attached to the reserve parachute. When the aircraft entered a spiral descent, the remaining parachutists and the pilot abandoned it. The aircraft impacted the ground in a near vertical attitude and was destoyed. The parachutist whose parachute tangled on the tailplane received fatal injuries.
