December 8, 2007, Tallahassee, Fla., Piper PA-22-150


While on final approach for a 1500-foot private turf strip, the airplane contacted trees, then utility wires and came to rest upright. During the impact, the airplane sustained substantial damage to the fuselage, and the pilot incurred minor injuries. The reported weather at an airport located approximately 19 miles west of the accident site, about the time of the accident, included calm winds, a broken ceiling at 9000 feet, and visibility 10 miles. Examination of the wreckage did not reveal any preimpact mechanical malfunctions, nor did the pilot report any.
