Investigating agency: AAIU Belgium
Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The aeroplane was performing aerobatics at very low altitude over the two aligned runways of a closed airfield, involving a flight at low level ending by wingover manoeuvres beyond each runway end. After the aeroplane repeated the manoeuvre twice, the aeroplane crashed into the ground of the northern runway at high speed.

The aircraft crashed upon a sudden descending turn initiated by the pilot when flying level over the airfield, at very low altitude. The probable cause of this descending turn is a pilot action on the controls that could be related to:
- A loss of the ground visual reference due to smoke present above the airfield, or
- The pilot having a sudden medical event possibly caused by the pull-up action exercised a few seconds before the crash.

Contributing factor:
The pilot’s unsafe behaviour was not reported to the Belgian CAA, as required by the Circular GDF-04U, preventing the BCAA from taking appropriate action.
