At 1750 Central time, the airplane collided with the ground while maneuvering. Visual conditions prevailed. The airplane was substantially damaged and the private pilot was killed.

A witness observed the airplane approaching his house and reported its fuselage was swaying from left to right. The airplane then made a steep left turn, with its left wing appearing perpendicular to the ground. The airplane reversed its course and leveled out. The wings were observed to wobble, then the airplane pitched down and collided with the ground in a nose-down attitude.
