April 29, 2007, Castle Rock, Colo., Schleicher Alexander ASH 29E


At approximately 1730 Mountain time, the glider was substantially damaged when it impacted terrain, fatally injuring the Commercial pilot. A witness observed the glider enter a left bank to the left, level, then initiate another left turn. The witness stated that the left wing dropped and the glider dove straight to the ground. The glider then disappeared behind a ridge.
