Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The airplane impacted the runway during landing in a nose low attitude. The pilot reported elevator control stiffness during his first approach for landing which was then followed by a go-around and the accident landing. No anomalies were noted when the elevators and ailerons were checked to ensure full unrestricted travel. There was no excessive play in the elevator, rudder, ailerons, and elevator. The elevator trim cable did not possess any tension relative to the 10-20 pound tension cited in the manufacturer's maintenance manual. The lack of elevator trim cable tension did not preclude operation of the elevator trim.

Probable Cause: the inadequate flare by the pilot. Factors were the loose trim tab cable for undetermined reasons.
