The pilot was spraying a cotton crop in light wind conditions. On the second clean-up run, although aware of the location of a powerline, the pilot could not see the wires due to spray drift contamination of the windscreen. He misjudged the pull up point, and the aircraft struck the wires with the right main landing gear. The aircraft was retarded by the wires and crashed inverted. The pilot was able to extricate himself before the aircraft was destroyed by fire.
