August 16, 2009, Hesperia, Calif., Cessna 152


The airplane was destroyed at about 1121 Pacific time when it descended into terrain. Visual conditions prevailed. The private pilot and passenger were killed.

A witness observed an airplane matching the make and model of the accident airplane make two high and fast approaches to land. After the second approach, the pilot initiated another go-around, which the witness described as employing a pitch attitude of about 45 degrees and left bank angle of about 60 degrees. The witness lost sight of the airplane seconds later but, a few minutes later, observed the crashed airplane next to the road on which he was driving.
