NTSB Brief On Velox Crash

Too Much Spin, Not Enough Altitude?

The NTSB has released an initial report on the crash of an aerobatic aircraft in Mooresville (NC). Here's what investigators have to say so far:

On October 12, 2003, at 1730 eastern daylight time, a McCan Velox Revolution II experimental airplane, N296VX (file photo of type, above), operating as a 14 CFR Part 91 aerobatic flight, collided with a hangar while maneuvering in the vicinity of Lake Norman Airpark, Mooresville, North Carolina. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and no flight plan was filed. The airplane was destroyed and there was a post-crash fire. The airline transport rated pilot reported minor injuries. The flight originated from Lake Norman Airpark, Mooresville, North Carolina, on October 12, 2003, at 1645.

The pilot stated he entered a flat spin at 4,000 feet in the vicinity of the airpark. He kept the airplane in the flat spin too long and realized that he had insufficient altitude to recover the airplane before it collided with the ground, and he was too low to bail out. He raised the nose to a vertical attitude and applied full power. The airplane collided with a hangar and a post-crash fire ensued.
